Alien Sound workshop at Tate Liverpool, Polo play Sound and Monks tease new single



Tate Liverpool host a special music workshop, Creatures to play Phase One and Getintothis’ Lewis Ridley shares a soulful track from JNR Williams.

Tate Liverpool are kicking us off this year with a special one off workshop on Alien Sound.

The workshop on Saturday, February 9 will see artists and theorists open up new possibilities for thinking and practising a different relationship to noise and music.

Guest are invited to join in with talks, interviews and discussions.

Tate say that this symposium will ask: “How can we hear ambience differently? How can it make us strange to ourselves again? How can this ‘alien sound’ generate alternative ways of experiencing space, time and world?”

Guest artists include Marie Thompson, Paul Reket, Dhanveer Singh Brar, Larne Abse Gogarty, Steve Davismoon, Rachael Rosen, Jon Davies, Annalaura Alifuoco and Silvia Battista.
