Soundome + Two One Six Residency
A residency to further the investigation into spatialising live electronic music with performing artists.
Location: Soundome, Bennetsbridge, Co. Kilkenny.
Artists in residency:
Facilitated by Tom Watts
The ‘Soundome + Two One Six’ residency took place near Kilkenny in August 2019 and was a collaboration between the maker of Soundome Tom Watts and the Limerick art and music collective Two One Six. The residency had two main objectives:
Four artists from Limerick were selected to partake and all approached the situation in different ways. Each artist had a time slot of two days that they spent learning the ropes of spatial audio and working together with Tom and myself to devise a final product, each was presented at a showcasing at the end of the two weeks. Out of this came three live performances and an interactive sound installation by Scott Robsinon titled ‘Plastic Tears’. The whole experience was crowned with a live performance from Dublin artist Somadrone from his ‘Ordnance Survey’ project.
The residency ended with three of the live performances utilising my custom software and showed promising results. It also highlighted much room for improvements and alterations which will be made in the future.
