‘Feel the Noise’ is a spatial and immersive composition by Sharon Gal for a large ensemble of electric guitars
‘Feel the Noise’ is a living and evolving sound sculpture, introducing an inclusive and egalitarian approach to composition and performance through collaborative music-making. The guitars are played through hand-held mini amplifiers, using a technique that produces low-volume feedback and continuous notes. The players move very slowly, affecting the ambience, projecting their sound and combining it with others, working together to shape and sculpt the sonic material. The piece highlights the relationship between sound and space by exploring and responding to the specific characteristics of the performance environment, architecture and acoustics. 'Feel the Noise' offers artistic engagement, play, and creative exchange as a means to learning and bringing together, presenting a democratic space and collective ownership.
The piece will premiere on Saturday, 28th of April at Goldsmith's Large Hall, at 7pm. Doors open 6.45pm
