Award winning Sheffield and Orkney based female sound collective SONA present an immersive live sound experience within the beautiful visuals of Permanent Distraction by Rafaël Rozendaal at Site Gallery. Featuring two stars of the live sound firmament – artists Helen Celle and Slaylor Moon.
The event consists of two 40-minute headphone sets, as the audience lie on yoga mats within the space and enjoy the synergy between the live sound design and the continually changing projected images. There will be a 30-minute tea/coffee break for reflection between sets. If audience members have any mobility issues please let the organisers know and they can provide a seated option.
Helena Celle is a Glaswegian artist and audio producer. She is concerned with the participatory representation of the imaginal through the organisation of sound, image and language. She currently produces an hour (or more) of original recordings for her patrons every month through an endeavour titled Outlet Archive.
Slaylor Moon (Sydney Koke) is a Canadian multidisciplinary artist and musician who shares her time between Strasbourg, France; Leeds, UK; and Calgary, Canada. Formerly a neuroscientist, her work is informed by themes of pattern detection, signal/noise, optics, and phenomenology. She is an advocate for neurodiversity and queer representation/expression in the arts. Her musical projects are highly diverse, and include abstract electronics, experimental dance music, and no wave.
