For this year’s edition, stages are to be hosted by a range of partners over the weekend.
Opening the festival on Friday, Offme Nut Records will host the launch party at Sheffield’s iconic Hope Works venue, with other local crews including Displace and PPG representing plus a special Algorave stage.
For Saturday’s proceedings, Resident Advisor and CRACK Magazine will host their own stages at Hope Works, with FACT Magazine presenting a stage at Trafalgar Warehouse with a special lineup curated by Mark Fell.
A unique programme of talks and panels will be overseen by Joe Muggs of The Wire, covering topics ranging from sound system culture to politics via technology and women in music. Details of artists and industry professionals participating will be unveiled in a few weeks.
Workshops will be presented throughout the festival to accommodate beginners and professionals alike. A live algorithmic drumming workshop will be provided by Alex Mclean, creator of the popular open source TidalCycles language for algorithmic music. In a similar vein, an ‘Introduction to live coding music’ workshop will be held by Python and SuperCollider specialist Ryan Kirkbride. UK artists Ifeoluwa and Blasha & Allatt will host a DJ workshop for women and non-binary attendees, providing an informal space for participants to explore the basics of DJing. Elsewhere, practical tips on burnout prevention within the creative industries will be delivered by Angga Kara.
As part of the art strand, Final Sheffield - a visual work commissioned at last year’s event to portray the ethos of the festival in an autonomous, non-traditional manner - will be shown. Created by Italo - Australian visual artist Rebecca Salvadori, the abstract work features non-chronological sequencing of audio to footage with participants including Terre Thaemlitz and Mark Fell. This year’s brand new commision will also be announced in the lead up to the event.
Another facet of this years art programme is Wet Sounds, a unique and immersive participatory installation by Joel Cahen at Heeley Swimming pool. During this unforgettable performance, audience members are invited to listen to an underwater sonic performance whilst floating in a historic Victorian swimming pool surrounded by subtle lighting, with sound systems both submerged in and around the water.
Further film screenings will be presented as part of Memory Dance x No Bounds 2018, the fourth in a series of events exploring electronic music, experimental moving image, and dementia. All proceeds will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Society. Works will be presented from a variety of artists with a focus on local thematics ranging from the post-industrial economy of Sheffield in the 70s to early visuals from Warp Records. On Sunday, Ralph Dartford has curated a lineup of inspiring poets at The Holt (more info HERE), an intimate setting for idea sharing and discussion.
