Gal's with Guitars

Friday 26 August 2016, 12–6pm V22 Louise House

Gal’s with Guitars (Feel the Noise) is a new participatory composition by Sharon Gal, for a group of female players using electric guitars, hand-held electronics, and micro amps.

The piece applies collaborative music making and highlights the relationship between sound and space by exploring and responding to the characteristics of the performance environment, its architecture and acoustics.

The composition is immersive and dynamic; the players move around the space, affecting its ambience, projecting their sound and combining it with others, shaping and sculpting the material, bringing about the group’s unique resonance and the emergence of a new sound.

Gal's with Guitars will be developed and performed to camera as part of V22 Summer Club 2016. 

Sharon Gal is an interdisciplinary artist, performer and experimental vocalist /composer, with particular experience of free improvisation and collaborative group compositions. Her work relates to sound, sculpture, architecture, live performance and participatory art, exploring the psychology of sound and its relationship with space.
