The third of our Listening Hour events, celebrating the sonic and relaxing in our cosy bar with like-minded friends. This week we’re welcoming Mike Hirst.
Former Bradford/Leeds resident Mike Hirst is an artist and musician living and working in the North East of England.
Current practice combines data art with electro-acoustic experimentation. Recent activity has included generating images and sound using data from the Chandra x-ray telescope (NASA); a project to investigate the creative possibilities for sound generation using electrolytic minerals found on the Cumbrian coastline; and ‘NordSee’ a project using sound and video gathered from the North Sea as a starting point for creative improvisation.
