Full Of Noises: Women Make Music
An outdoor Ambisonic sound system in a shopping centre? Don’t be daft! Bet you didn’t know they had one of these in Workington? Well, they do – Its called The Hub.
An ongoing strand of the ‘Full of Noises’ programme focuses on multi-channel diffusion and spatial audio work so we are really excited to be able to commission Brona Martin to work with the Hub in Workington bringing New Music to audiences in Cumbria, making use of the UK’s only public outdoor 3D ambisonic sound system.
Brona will create a new Electroacoustic work over six months in response to the industry, community and the environment around Workington, an industrial town on the edge of the Lake District, as Brona says:
The commissioned work will be accompanied by a programme of fixed media multi-channel pieces by women composers, curated by Full of Noises with Brona. Following the premiere in Workington the programme will go on a short tour to Lancaster, Leicester and London and will subsequently feature in our 2015 Full of Noises festival in Barrow in Furness.
