Small Commissions Update: Matt Lewis Sound Recording Workshops
Matt Lewis, a recipient of our Small Commissions grant, has been working with local residents to create sound recordings which capture the ‘noise’ of place and communities living on the edges of the city. These are sites where residential meets industrial or agricultural. The project has focused on the housing estates in Welland (built in the 1960s) and Cardea (still in development). The resulting atmospheric soundscapes explore the complex, layered ‘music’ of how natural and man-made environments co-exist audibly (for better and for worse) and their impact on those that live there.
Matt’s findings from his residency and workshops will be showcased at ‘Resident’, at City Gallery from July. To find out more about the exhibition, click here: http://www.metalculture.com/event/resident/
