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 third in the series sees Cryptic Associate, Robbie Thomson and Sonica Artist-in-Residence, Henrique Roscoe discuss their experience of the emerging years of artists – their backgrounds, how they started out, their journey so far and the challenges they have faced in establishing their practice.

Robbie Thomson is a Glasgow based artist and theatre maker who works with kinetic sculpture, music, lighting design and technology. He is a member of artist collective 85A, which has produced over 15 large scale performance, visual art and film works to date. Thomson’s work has been shown at venues including the ICA, Festival De Kreuze (Rotterdam), Barbican, CCA, Shunt, Fusion Festival, Summerhall, Glasgow Sculpture Studios, The Arches, Transmission Gallery and The Woodmill.

Digital artist, musician and curator, Henrique Roscoe mixes contemporary art, live audiovisual performances, digital art in the construction of custom-made interfaces and instruments, where sound and music are seamlessly integrated in performance.

Daniel Marrable (TERRIBLEm86) graduated from York University, Toronto and has since created work in Vancouver, Jeffrey’s Bay (South Africa), London, Glasgow and Baku. His practice brings new meaning to discarded objects whose endearing qualities and flaws create an emotional connection that showcase imperfections as strengths.

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.
