Launch night at OVADA:
Tuesday 6 March 2018 from 6.30pm
audiograft returns with its annual mix of new experimental music and sound, exhibitions, artists’ talks and workshops. This year’s festival promises to open your ears and eyes to more extraordinary and surprising performances and installations that will feature the sounds of digital dystopia, dismembered instruments, the contents of the average kitchen cupboard and other domestic sounds, walls of feedback, glitches, drones, loops and bracing amplification. At the heart of the festival is a group exhibition at OVADA featuring Kathy Hinde, Simon Blackmore, Sally Ann McIntyre and Lance Austin Olsen. The festival also features Icebreaker’s System Restart programme with work by Anna Meredith, Linda Buckley, Kerry Andrew, Jobina Tinnemans, Elizabeth Kelly and Kate Moore.
This year the festival will also be resident at Fusion Arts, featuring new work by Renzo Spiteri, Brigitte Hart, Gary Charles and Sian Hutchings, and will also mark the release of a double CD of interpretations of a graphic score by SARU practitioner Thomas Martin Nutt.
audiograft is a PWYD (Pay What You Decide) festival.
