Pea Pod Collective – Sonic Potential Workshops

When did you last make time to listen to your own breath – the rustling of leaves – or the sound of rain on glass?

The Pea Pod Collective have commissioned Sound Artist Cormac Faulkner to lead Sonic Potential workshops on 18th and 19th March 2014.

To find out more you are invited to attend an audience with Cormac Faulkner on 12th March or you can book individual workshops via Eventbrite.co.uk (search for Peapod collective)

An audience with Cormac Faulkner begins at 1.15pm (@ The Pod with live music from Tailor and the Crow (Cormac Faulkner & Ian Kinsella) leading into the talk with the artist about his work. Cormac Faulkner is an Irish artist now based in Coventry. His work is concerned with our reaction to different spaces and how our behaviour and understanding can change when presented with new information and new ways of exploring them. He is a multi-disciplinary artist and uses sound, light and sculptural materials in his work.

Cormac’s previous commissions include the 2006, “I am an Instrument,” a permanent sound installation on the staircase of The Herbert Art Gallery and “Axis Mundi,” a light and sound installation for twine and light bulb (premiere Pluspace Gallery, Coventry April 2012).
