Speaker

Graham Dunning

Graham Dunning [b. 1981] is self-taught as an artist and musician having studied neither discipline academically. His live work explores sound as texture, timbre and something tactile, drawing on bedroom production, tinkering and recycling found objects. He also creates visual work, video and installations drawing on these themes. Much of the work evolves through experimentation with different processes: considering the methods by which sounds become music; process as a continuum encompassing both improvisational and procedural methods; and testing analogous processes across different media. Graham has performed solo and in ensembles across the UK, Europe and Canada, and exhibited in the UK, Europe, New Zealand and USA. He teaches Experimental Sound Art at the Mary Ward Centre in London and also gives various independent workshops. He has released through Entr’acte, Seagrave, Tombed Visions and more.

For this talk Artist and Musician Graham Dunning will discuss and demo his incredible 'Mechanical Techno', an installation that explores the live performance of hand crafted physical turntables. Audience members will also have the opportunity to interact and play with 'Mechanical Techno' after the talk.

Graham Dunning will be performing as part of Submerge at Tactile Sound on March 9th at Loco Club to book tickets and read more about the event go here.
