We are delighted to welcome Lee Patterson back to Barrow following his memorable performance at the Full of Noises festival in 2019.
Lee uses sound making and recording to devise performances with a selection of amplified objects, devices and processes, from rock chalk to springs, from burning nuts to vibrating metal.
Based in Prestwich, Manchester, UK. he works internationally and has featured on UK TV, BBC Radio, Resonance FM and on radio stations worldwide.
As a prelude to his performance Lee will talk about the dual elements of his practice, exploring how his field recording work with hydrophones and contact microphones co-exists and has co-evolved with his live work.
With recorded examples alongside demonstrations of his unique, self built instruments, he will show how notions of studio and landscape are interchangeable and thus, how open ears, play and curiosity can deliver new perspectives on work and environment.
His self-directed research using contact microphones and hydrophones has revealed how many things in the world around us act as sites for energy transferal and as such can be considered as musical instruments in-situ.
From singing bridges and sonorous railings to synthesising chalk and the chirping, whistling chorus of ponds, he proposes a new, weird music, albeit one hidden within the fabric of our everyday existence.
