Noise artists from the Phonic Art course at the Hull School of Art & Design are to collaborate with acoustic art ensemble Konk Pack for an evening of sound art and music improvisation next month.


‘Improvisation as anti-language’ will take place at Timebase in Hull’s High Street on  Sunday 6th February at 7pm and will form part of a series of events entitled ‘TOOT - gigs’.


Konk Pack comprises Roger Turner (drums and percussion), Tim Hodgkinson (flat guitar, reeds and electronics) and Thomas Lehn (analogue synthesiser).


This February date follows the success of the International ROOT Festival in October which coincided with the launch of Timebase as the home of Hull Time Based Arts and the  Animation and TV & Film Design departments of the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside.


‘TOOT - gigs’ is supported by the new Phonic Art programme at the Hull School of Art & Design which pioneers research and learning in visual and audio art.


The evening is also supported by the Arts Council Improvised Music Touring Scheme.


Parking is available near Time Base and the building has full wheelchair access. Tickets cost £3 on the door.
