Will take place in London, various venues, from April to October 2017. On Friday 10 March, Sounding DIY is announced at The Wire . Thanks!




The exhibition pretends to highlight the D.i.Y practices in front of the capitalist industry. Thus, represents an imperative change in the prototyping of musical instruments and sound objects that have effectively set as a primary creative impulse in our century. Sounding D.i.Y. works with almost thirty artists in the field of handmade culture and promotes the efficiency of the results attained, either aesthetically and ideologically. Our goal is to highlight artistic creation through the development of new technologies and craftsmanship. Finally, our interest is to foster a community of tool developers and creative practitioners interested in supporting and understanding deep and sustained creative practice with technological tools.

ARTISTS PROPOSED: David Bloor, Tom Mudd, Tom Richards, Andrew Rowe, Noise Orchestra, Signal to Noise.
OPENING – Wednesday 19 April 2017, 6 pm
LIVE PERFORMANCE – Saturday 22 April 2017, 6 pm

At Chalton Gallery, from 19 to 23 April 2017.

The purpose of the catalogue is to work as an exhibition catalogue. The intention is to create a print book through the use of print on demand (POD) services. The product is presented as an independent publication.  The catalogue will serve as a memorandum of the activity. The intention of the record is to serve as a reminder and material support for the sound works and audios presented in the exhibitions, the workshops and concerts. The album will offer one track of each of the artists participating in the activity, with up to 9 tracks by Bioni Samp, David Bloor, Dirty Electronics, Dom Allen, Hrvoje Hirsl, Jukka Hautamaki, Optonoise, Prolonged Version, and Signal Noise.  Mastered by Tom Webster and Bioni Samp @ Fort Rebel Studios. Produced by elektronische-art-and-music EAM record label






Sounding DIY is expected to happen from April to October 2017. The exhibition is proposed to last at least one week in the gallery space. The supporting events, such as workshops, talks and concerts are scheduled to happen once a month during the period April -October 2017. These are prepared to be one-day-event. Proposed calendar:

  • 17 – 23/04/2017 Sounding DIY  / Chalton Gallery – Exhibition
  • 27/05/2017 Sounding DIY /  Cafe Oto – Workshop & Concert
  • 10/06/2017 Sounding DIY /  Iklectik Art Lab – Workshop & Concert

Sounding DIY is an event that promotes more than 20 artists, who are involved in different activities. The exhibition, for example, presents works from six renowned artists, David Bloor, Magz Hall, Tom Mudd, Tom Richards, Andrew Rowe, Noise Orchestra, Taro Yasunoand Signal to Noise. Three workshops are already scheduled; one by Dirty Electronics, another by  Toni Quiroga; the third one is by Stephen Cornford. The event is supported by concerts, with artists such as Bioni Samp, Richard Crow, Phantom Chips, Prolonged Version, xname, or Optonoise.




The aim of the exhibition Sounding DIY is to present different works in the gallery space, as well as, to engage audiences with workshops. The precariousness of artistic means will be solved with a new curatorial methodology that integrates different activities under the same concept. Here the exhibition, concerts, talks and workshops are all under one framework for action. So, its primary interest is to reach audiences in an educational and participatory manner.  As an outcome of the activity, a record and a catalogue will be independently published.
