TONIGHT

R L (MONO) ART NOISE SOUND SILENCE MOTION

An evening of Sound/Movement Art Installations at the Pod.

Our good friends at The Pod (1A Lamb street, Coventry) present “R L Mono,” an evening of; Art, noise, sound, silence & motion. The night will feature an art installation from artist Emilia Moniszko, which will involve her collaborating with musicians in a live musical improvisation encompassing a range of instruments including the resonant metallic sounds of the Bow Chime (Arran Poole) as well as the more familiar sounds of Piano and Guitar. Doors will be open from 6pm on the 23rd April and the evening will also include a sound art work derived from audio that was recorded on Cormac Faulkner’s “Releasing the Sonic Potential” workshops, which focused on themes of industry and the outdoors. The Schedule commences at 6.15pm with Cormac Faulkner’s “Releasing the Sonic Potential” and leads into the Moniszko-Collective Improvisation at 6.45pm. Emilia’s solo work completes the line-up from 7.15pm – 7.45pm. “R L Mono” features the Pod’s first dedicated sound art Installation and is an opportunity to appreciate the transformative effects that artists and musicians can bring to a building. Visitors are advised that the installation will be filmed as a part of overall artwork.

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).

Artist Stewart Easton takes residence in new artist space

the-great-fire12 www.stewarteaston.co.uk

Stewart Easton is a midlands based artist currently working in hand embroidery and digital print on fabric. His work is focused on stitch and narrative using authorial illustration to create large scale embroidered panels.

Using folk song and story as a starting point Easton weaves story-based narratives, utilising the space of a single panel to explore time, movement and transition within his tapestry based works.

He is currently making use of a hybrid technique mixing digital print with hand embroidery exploring both modern and traditional methods of creating, enabling his work to straddle the lines between Craft, Illustration and Fine Art.

Stewart joins us in our new artist space which will host two artists and a silkscreen print press.
