EMMA SMITH : EUPHONIA
Apr 27 - Jun 24, 2018
Private view Thu Apr 26 6pm - 10pm
Bluecoat’s gallery is transformed into a sonic chamber for collective singing in this ground-breaking new sound installation by Emma Smith, based on the music of social communication. Euphonia is an interactive sound work illustrating how we unconsciously make music through interlocking rhythms, pitch and tone when we engage in friendly interactions - such as chitchat with friends. Smith will draw from sounds created by the many people who visit Bluecoat on a daily basis –parents and babies, visitors to the café and the choirs and groups who rehearse there in the evenings.

The afternoon includes Professor Lauren Stewart (Goldsmiths), Professor Ian Cross (University of Cambridge) and Writer & Curator Dr Michael Birchall (Tate Liverpool / Liverpool John Moores University) who will join Smith to explore the music of social communication in the sound installation.

Feb 2 - Apr 21, 2018 FINAL WEEK
Grand Union is pleased to present Deeper in the Pyramid, a project by Melanie Jackson.
 
Deeper in the Pyramid is an expansive new body of work comprising of animation, sculpture, a filmed performance and a publication in a graphic novel format, written in collaboration with Esther Leslie.
 
We are taken on a journey of lactic abstractions, through the webs of bio-invasion and collective fantasy that interconnect various life forms through milk, its technologies and representations. The ontologies of species and gender have always been shaped by our relations with this primal liquid, and ensuring a ready supply has driven research in genetics, fertility and robotics. It is now open for radical transformation as new bio-organisms emerge, and real science merges with the fantastic.
 
This project will be delivered across Grand Union, Primary in Nottingham and Banner Repeater in London.
