VAU are proud to announce they will be facilitating a series of four artist/talk discussion events for Sonica 2015 in association with Cryptic.

The last in the series sees Sam Underwood and Lauren Sarah Hayes in conversation with visual artist Heather Ross explore the creation of sound and the context/architecture in which it is experienced.

MortonUnderwood’s CONTRA, first commissioned by Southbank Centre, London, is a powerful custom-built pipe instrument that has been re-configured as an interactive sub-bass sound installation where deep drones emanate, interplay and reverberate around the Tank Room of Glasgow’s Glue Factory.

15 Seconds is a site specific performance by musician and sound artist Lauren Sarah Hayes, evoking the unique aural and visual qualities of the iconic Hamilton Mausoleum.

Artist Heather Ross’ work is most concerned with how human experience is mediated, by exploring the tensions between reality and representation. She works with images and objects that alter, or make evident, different ways of seeing and hearing. These processes might include moving image, the use of optical and auditory devices, painting and performance to convey ambiguous environments, spaces and forms.

Sonica takes place across Glasgow from 29 Oct – 8 Nov with a programme dedicated to world-class visual sonic arts, presenting emerging British talent alongside exceptional international artists from Australia, Belgium, Brazil, China, France, Indonesia, Netherlands and Québec.
