An Evening of Electronic Music

Category: Previous Events Published on 14 September 2015 Nick Robinson
Hits: 1339

Friday October 30 7.30pm

These artists are returning due to popular demand to present an evening of gentle (and sometimes dark) electronic music. Please note, the venue has a capacity of 50 people, so early booking is advised.

Peter Challoner
An electronic music composer from the UK, born, raised in Nottingham in the heart of Central England. He is not what you would class as an orthodox musician, having had no formal musical training, and the fact that music, although being a major force in his life, for most of his life, is only a supplementary activity to a career as an architectural technician. It has long been stated that there are strong links between music, architecture, and visual arts in general. ‘My job is creative, a design process from a concept form of an idea into a finished piece of construction, and it's the same approach with my music'

Nick Robinson
A former member of Sheffield bands as diverse as Typhoon Saturday, Dig Vis Drill, They Must Be Russians and the Comsat Angles, Nick has for many years offered a range of soundscapes and other looping guitar pieces. Using just the guitar and a laptop, he takes you via the power of improvisation to distant planets. Nick is half of the "Lost Garden" duo, who have a CD "Cotyledon" out now.

A Collection of Notes
Classic synth/electro/ambient music created by Sheffield’s Jan Gilhooley using only Apple’s iPad and iPod Touch running a variety of software synths. Originally “A Collection of Notes” was Jan’s name for some early electronic music experiments back in the late 1980s. When he discovered the possibilities of making electronic music using the Apple mobile devices in 2011 “A Collection of Notes” was renewed to provide a vehicle for the new music created. The ability to create music that both incorporates and reflects the physical environment is one of principle sources of inspiration.

Wednesday December 2nd, 7.30pm

Sheffield is synonymous with steel, cutlery and knives, but buttons? Archaeological excavations on the current site of Heeley City Farm produced evidence of buttons being made from mother of pearl shell. There are no records of manufacturing premises at this location, so were people making buttons in their homes? Join me on a journey of discovery into a little-known aspect of Sheffield's industrial past.

We understand this will cause some disappointment but it was necessary to restrict numbers  There will be a small number of seats available on top of those reserved via ticketing but we cannot guarantee a place without a ticket.  We are sorry about this and will be  trying to arrange a new talk from Neil soon.
