Suitable for all ages. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
Copper Sounds will offer an introduction into sound lathes, cutting frequencies into wax and creating your own dubplate. Using turntables and automatic drawing to awaken your inner surrealist.
Participants will be given a demonstration of how to use a turntable as a drawing tool. Working collaboratively they will then create a personalised record sleeve of their own using various mediums.
The second element to this workshop is based on similar principles. Participants will be creating their own wax dub plates using turntables, speakers and frequencies to carve into wax discs. So at the end of the workshop you walk away with your own wax record in a sleeve.
About the artists
Copper Sounds are a Bristol based duo who are pushing the conventional DJ set towards a more three dimensional conclusion. During their expansive live DJ sets they juggle four turntables to extract and manipulate the native and otherwise dormant sounds of their eclectic record collection. The imposing, hypnotic physical set-up sculpts a raw and repetitive cacophony creating a dark and fractious dancefloor energy, which the duo rides into a prehistoric and tectonic assault.
