'The Valley' Launch Event
Metamorphosis: Urban-Organ in collaboration with Calderdale Sound Women Network Concert for organ, organ+electronics, live-looping, voice, and live electronics.
Featuring: CSWN artists Pam Hulme, Jo Kennedy, Sophie Cooper, and Magpahi.
Based in Todmorden and Hebden Bridge, Calderdale Sound Women's Network are a loose collective with a shared interest in sound and music in all its forms.
"The Valley" is a new initiative that will be launched during Hebden Bridge Arts Festival week. At this launch event CSWN will present findings of recent research of who is performing in the Upper Calder Valley and where. We will also be launching an open call project at the event which will invite women and non-binary people in the Upper Calder Valley to create new pieces of collaborative work under mentorship from CSWN.
My piece ‘Life in the Rain’ is being exhibited at Fuse Art Space, along with work from several other artists.
An exploration of sound and place, featuring work by Chris Watson, Jo Kennedy, Heloise Tunstall-Behrens, Tim Shaw, James Davoll, Andrew Tuttle, Tony Dupé, Julie Stoneman and Ben Gale.
