Opening event at S1 Artspace
Sound Spill (working title)
Thursday 23 April, 6.30-8.30pm

The next S1 Members & Associates exhibition is curated by Thom O’Nions and Haroon Mirza and will be the first in a series of shows addressing the problem of sound spill in group exhibitions. The issue of sound spill is rarely addressed beyond the simple practicalities of it; the sound from one work merging with the sound from another is generally considered a problem that the curator does their best to minimise.

My Secret Heart
as part of Sensoria festival.

Music and film installation, on a 360° screen with surround sound, by Sheffield’s own Flat-e, Warp’s Mira Calix and Dave Sheppard.

Commissioned by Streetwise Opera.

Electronic composer and Warp Records artist Mira Calix, video artists Flat-e and sound designer Dave Sheppard worked with around 100 Streetwise performers to create this unique work on a purpose built 360 degree screen with surround sound. The piece is inspired by the Allegri’s 17th-century choral work Miserere Mei, a piece so protected by the Vatican that they put an embargo on it. Mira Calix and Flat-e have used the theme of secrecy to explore movements and singing with Streetwise’s participants to create this new century-leaping work.

Thursday 30 April 1pm-7pm
Sheffield Independent Film
Price: Free

Wet Sounds and Advanced Beauty

Sensoria has brought together the underwater music experience that is Wet Sounds with a special selection of visuals from Universal Everything’s Advanced Beauty (as featured at Lovebytes fest) to create a unique experience that is a treat for the ear and eye.
Presented in association with Onedotzero.

Wet Sounds is a listening gallery of sound art by artists from around the world played back through underwater speakers to a floating and diving audience. With ears submerged the listener is immersed in sound perceived through the ears and through the body.

Advanced Beauty is a collection of digital artworks curated by Universal Everything and musician Freeform. The collection is a series of audio-reactive ‘video sound sculptures’. These videos are physical manifestations of sound, sculpted by volume, pitch or structure of the soundtrack and for the first time will be projected and broadcast underwater.

Saturday 25th April 4.30pm – 7.00pm
Ponds Forge Diving Pool
Price: Pool Charges
