Sound Workshops with Artist in Residence Aliaskar Abarkas | 1 July, 6:30pm

Arts and Culture – Thursday, April 11th, 2024

From Autumn 2023 – Summer 2024, we are announcing a new opportunity for sound artists by providing a part-time studio space for two practitioners and collectives to rehearse, experiment with the acoustics of the building and engage with local communities.

Our 2023 – 2024 residents invite local communities and the public to take part in their monthly workshops.


Aliaskar Abarkas | The Community Whistling Choir

Monday 1 July, 6:30pm (1h 30min) | Gallery Room

The Community Whistling Choir is an ongoing project facilitated by artist Aliaskar, which explores communication, conviviality, and participation through the sound of whistling, transcending conventional language.

During his residency, Aliaskar  invites a diverse group to engage in monthly rehearsals. These sessions involve workshops, sonic exercises, and listening sessions facilitated by the artist and guest collaborators, aiming to craft whistling soundscapes collectively.

Collaborating with musicians, the participants record whistling sounds, creating compositions for streaming on radio stations, a music album, and live performances at the Church in 2024.

If you would like to attend the workshop, please register your interest via Eventbrite.
