A Spectrum Carved in Air

Vocal Instrument Workshop with Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe



DATE: Sunday 1st July 2018


LOCATION: Soup Kitchen


TIME:  17.00 - 18.30


FREE: The workshops are suitable for anyone no matter their singing ability and available for up to 15 participant. Booking is essential.

To book a place on this workshop email emma@fatout.co.uk


The workshop will be a simple exploration of the human voice as an instrument; both un-effected and effected through experimenting with electronic audio processing tools. Participants will explore the extraordinary capabilities of the human voice and body to gently nudge and liberate their limits to sculpt and shape the air and space around them in unison.


The voice is the most versatile and malleable instrument available to us. With it, the artist will guide participants to find pockets and windows in, out and around space, to create landscapes and narratives that explore tone, timbre and gesture.


No singing experience necessary, just curiosity, courage and an open mind!


About the Artist

Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe is a U.S based multidisciplinary artist whose practice is strongly rooted in exploration of moments and the hypnagogic state. Movement and gesture play key factors within this process, and in the performance realm are focused on by voice and modular

TIME:  17.30 - 20.30

For the first tour, Kelly Jayne Jones will lead a series of group workshop sessions that explore improvisation as a means of building community, exploring mindfulness and enabling political expression  sharing the methods, approaches and inspirations present within her sound making practice.  


Taking inspiration from John Zorn’s Game Pieces the workshops will take an experimental and collaborative approach to composition with participants drawing upon a range of objects, methods, activities and processes along with mindfulness techniques to consider what it is to create sound together.  


Exploring the spaces within and between improvisation and composition as a means of collective creative expression, workshop participants will engage in processes of communal creativity inspiring interpersonal transformation as a political act.


About the Artist

Kelly Jayne Jones makes use of varying combinations of prepared recordings, text, rocks, found sounds and flute. Her work beckons a tussle with uncertainty, inviting exposure and vulnerability in performance, chasing experiences that open our chasms within, without restraint. Searching for humble principles of growth; physis; sound, connecting with others in the same space/ moment, customary experimental play, with threads and beads of improvisation and interactivity.


Kelly has facilitated numerous workshops including Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, and Manchester’s Brighter Sound Libraries project with young adults.


Workshops are free to attend.
