2PM – 4PM: Noize Choir Taster Session
Join Noize Choir for a two hour workshop in extended / experimental vocal technique! They’ll be taking us through improvisation exercises and tasks in which we can explore how to make noise as a choir ensemble, how we can listen carefully and respond to each other. During the workshop we’ll devise a piece for performance and then perform together as a scratch choir later in the day!
All abilities welcome!
FREE but limited numbers: Sign up for a space by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
5PM: Scratch Choir Performance
Come down and take in/take part the amazing performance by Hull’s Scratch Noize Choir! If you can’t make it to the workshop, why not come and absorb the lush sounds everyone has been working on during the day!
Bio: The Noize Choir is a performance ensemble that was formed in 2011 by Newcastle based artists Lindsay Duncanson and Marek Gabrysch. It involves a loose collective of noise enthusiasts with a common desire to use the human voice free of the traditional restraints of typical choral settings, language or musical notation. Their work is based on a shared fascination with science, culture and landscape. They indulge in phenomenological explorations of museum collections, or imaginings of our geological past. Replicating and experimenting with the sound of machines or the natural world, Noize Choir continually find ways to push and pull the idea of what a choir can be. Noize Choir have composed and performed in French churches and on Austrian radio, at the Baltic Centre for contemporary arts, The Literary and Philosophical Society of Newcastle Upon Tyne, and the Grade II listed Preston Bus station.
