On Saturday 15th March I’m running a workshop and performing live at Dear Serge a free event at the De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-on-Sea.
1pm-2pm Graham Dunning Workshop
Ghost in the Machine Music:
Build an abstract music making machine using scratched records, turntables and keyboards. Then jump on the controls as a group and free the ghost in the machine with a live mixing performance. (The sounds you produce will be recorded and you’ll receive a digital copy)
2.15pm-2.45pm Graham Dunning – Performance
Vinyl dissonance for lost memories: a live rhythmical collage made of squeezed record crackle, analogue synthesizer, dubplates of field recordings, dusty shellac records and clumsily triggered drum machines.
Graham dunning creates art in many formats but the common thread across all of his work is the use of found objects and sound.
“My background is in experimental music and this continues into the art I make and how I go about it. I use experimentation and play as a main part of my making process. I also like to set myself restrictions for my projects similarly to the way scientific experiments are conducted. Noise – as unwanted sound like record crackle or tape hiss – often features in my work, and a visual equivalent in dirt, dust or decay. I often try and repeat a visual process with audio, and vice versa.
