Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design

Book now

For the final note of the Event Series of Bow Gamelan Ensemble: Great Noises that Fill the Air at Cooper Gallery, artist and musician Ariki Porteous invites you to participate in an improvised musical ensemble, drawing upon her own sound practice and methods used in collaborative projects.

Deconstructing the gamelan influenced Sonic Youth song ‘She is not alone’ and the use of rhythmic video excerpts and field recordings will act as a basic structure for a visual and aural score that participants will respond too. We will make sound with instruments and voices, using minimalist techniques of repetition, looping, duration and space as a means to create a sonic meditative experience.

Workshop is free and no experience required
