Deep Hedonia and The Drawing Paper make a return to the Bluecoat with a new presentation of SPACE//SOUND. First hosted in July of last year, the event will see musicians and artists explore scanning and reproduction in the creative process in response to current Bluecoat exhibition The Negligent Eye. Along with the presentation of special performances and music pieces composed specially for surround sound, artists Madeline Hall of the Royal Standard and Drawing Paper co-founder Jon Barraclough will be responding to the music with live drawings projected onto a panoramic three walled screen.

For this event, Deep Hedonia and The Drawing Paper have scanned the city for its brightest experimental musicians. Leftfield pop auteurs Ninetails have been illuminating indie circles with glitching crystalline textures and heart melting melodies, and will be presenting a special reworking of their EP ‘Quiet Confidence’. Member of progressive pop quintet Outfit Andrew Hunt, aka Dialect, is set to present a new composition made especially for SPACE//SOUND based on the immersive world of first person shooter games.  There will also be new work on show from tape loop experimentalist In Atoms and maximalist producer and Deep Hedonia favourite Banana Frequency.

Live performances will be from Liverpool noise stalwart Simon Jones, who has been composing as Hot Hail, a venture into abstract sublimations of everyday sounds, creating dark ambient moods and sensual environments. The Hive Collective producer Rob Strachan and video artist Sam Wiehl have been collaborating together for over ten years, and for this performance Wiehl will be responding to Strachan’s surround sound compositions. SPACE//SOUND will also give the audience a chance to witness another performance of their collaborative project Drawing Ensemble, where live improvisational musicians interact with drawers, who in turn sonically affect the music in real time through their mark making.

SPACE//SOUND is a one of a kind event that brings together Liverpool’s most forward-thinking artists and programmers for one special night celebrating the reciprocal nature of audio and visual elements in art, and invites you to witness and experience a tailor-made immersive atmosphere. /
