Birmingham-based Arkala is an act of two halves - Benjamin Kane behind a drum kit and Thomas Ford on guitar.

Their initial trial and error late-night sessions in an east Berlin apartment provided a base from which to create and imagine, and the music they wanted was born. www.arkala.bandcamp.com

"One of the most exciting things about new music in Birmingham is the diversity of the numerous scenes there. Some people say there isn't a strong scene but quite the opposite...An example of this is the duo of Benjamin Kane and Thomas Ford, 'Arkala'...they blend their sound of just guitar and drum kit, exploring all the ways they can be played, to create to most beautiful music i've heard in a long time. "

Sonophore by Signal to Noise
A site-specific interactive sound installation, Signal to Noise's Sonophore invited visitors to interact with hundreds of strips of unspooled audio cassette tape.


This tape is attached to the walls of the space, laterally spanning its interior. It surrounds the participant and audience, following the space’s physical contours, which act as a structure on which the tape can be both displayed and interacted with.

Sonophore comes from the Latin for 'sound-carrier'. The work explores the capacity of magnetic tapes to hold and transmit sonic information.

Sono - (Latin: sound, that which is heard; noise).

Phore - (Latin: carrying, bearer, to bear, producing, transmission; directing, turning;) The sound content of the tape varies depending on the site and consists of material gathered from the local area, such as found recordings and sound archives. These sounds are gathered or recorded specifically for each exhibition. Unique spaces or structures provide excellent audio content for this work, especially derelict/disused buildings. As the participant interacts with the tape they can play-back these captured sounds in a playful and sonically interesting experience.

The Search for Andy Warhol's Voice by Dr. Jean Wainwright
Curated and conceived by Dr. Jean Wainwright this companion exhibition comprises tape recordings of interviews taken over the course of an eleven year journey to find 'Warhol’s voice', as told by those who were associated with him.

The recordings, played on old cassette players, contain the stories of Warhol's collaborators, stars of his films, and his family. This incredible sound installation provides a unique insight into Andy Warhol the man - from the way he talked, to his working methods and relationship with family and lovers - brought together from the archives of Dr. Jean Wainwright. Photographs and objects from Wainwright's extensive Warhol collection accompany the installation.

Free entry, bar opens at 7pm
