entry is free
Experience Bristol’s history of sound reimagined in this celebration of the city’s sound heritage, reinterpreted in an afternoon and evening of free creative workshops, installations and performances.
Bristol’s symbiotic relationship with sound continues to evolve with the ever-changing and diverse makeup of the city’s inhabitants and the emergence of new creative technologies. Bristol Re:sound is a sonic exploration of that relationship.
In the afternoon, take part in analogue tape composition workshops, modular synthesis workshops and composed sound walks around the city. Across three levels of Colston Hall’s Foyer, encounter sound installations which reimagine the sounds of Bristol, its musical identity and subculture through immersive soundscapes.
From 7pm the Foyer sees a sharing of short performances incorporating a variety of innovative techniques and technologies, including live sampling, VR, AV and a Turntablism Ensemble.
The evening closes in fitting style with DJ sets on the Terrace Bar overlooking the city from:
