The Embodied AudioVisual Interaction Group (EAVI) convenes a day of audiovisual workshops with Howlround, Calum Gunn and Ewa Justka. Each workshop is led by a musician who will teach participants how to make and use the unique tools they use to create music. Participants will then have the opportunity to perform alongside the artists in an evening concert.
The series of workshops explores EAVI’s key research interests, focusing on embodied interaction with sound and image. Aligning with other aspects of the In formation programme, EAVI locate audiovisual performance within spaces of collaboration and sensory connectivity, articulating new ways for collective and individual interaction to promote learning and participation.
Join Ewa Justka and make your own Voice Odder, a unique electronic instrument developed and used by Justka. The Voice Odder can be used to create echoes, delays, reverbs, distortion and world domination. It might be the only musical instrument you will ever need. During the workshop you will learn how to make an electronic circuit, how to solder, read schematics and data sheets, use a multimeter and more. All materials will be provided, and by the end of the workshop you will have a Voice Odder of your own. You will also have the opportunity to perform with other workshop participants in Ewa Justka's Acid Orchestra as part of the evening concert.
Ewa Justka will also give a solo live AV performance, transforming the Upper Galleries of the ICA into a temple of acid.
This workshop will involve the use of soldering irons
Ewa Justka is a Polish electronic noise artist, self-taught instruments builder and electronics teacher. Justka’s main field of research is based on an exploration of the materiality of objects, vibrant, ontological systems, and an investigation into modes of quasi-direct perception through noise performance actions, interactive installation, DIY electronics, hardware hacking, plant-molesting, breaking, deconstructing and collaborating. Her thrilling AV performances coax stroboscopic acid from assemblages of drum machines and homemade electronics. She recently received the Oram Award from PRS.
