Playing with Sound: A Listening Workshop

“There are two things that don’t have to mean anything to give us great pleasure, one is music and the other is laughter.” — John Cage (talking about the ideas of Immanuel Kant). Imagine the sound of a desert cactus after a rainstorm; or the sound of a frozen lake; or perhaps the wind moving across a 200 meter tall radio antenna on a mountainside.  This workshop will offer you an exciting opportunity to work with international sound artist and musician, Rees Archibald, recently returned to Thirroul from Lithuania, to learn about how to access sound worlds like these using small touch sensitive contact microphones and your mobile phone.
