2013 – August 9 – 11 – SUPERNORMAL FESTIVAL
Ginko returns to SUPERNORMAL this year to deliver a special listening and composition workshop based around contact microphones.
“SSW is an interactive listening exercise introducing the audience to the secret world of sounds through homemade contact microphones. The mics will be taken out onto the festival site to discover objects that reveal unheard and unknown secret sounds. Upon returning you will use bows, beaters and plectrums to create a piece of music using your discovered sounds played through battery powered amplifiers and concluding in a group musical performance. DIY pre-made contact microphone kits will be available to take home to experiment further beyond the festival.”
2013 – July 1 – 5 – Experimental Sounding Board, Brighton
