audiograft festival 2018
audiograft returns with its annual mix of new experimental music and sound, exhibitions, artists’ talks and workshops. This year’s festival promises to open your ears and eyes to more extraordinary and surprising performances and installations that will feature the sounds of digital dystopia, dismembered instruments, the contents of the average kitchen cupboard and other domestic sounds, walls of feedback, glitches, drones, loops and bracing amplification. At the heart of the festival is a group exhibition at OVADA featuring Kathy Hinde, Simon Blackmore, Sally Ann McIntyre and Lance Austin Olsen. The festival also features Icebreaker’s System Restart programme with work by Anna Meredith, Linda Buckley, Kerry Andrew, Jobina Tinnemans, Elizabeth Kelly and Kate Moore.
“An absolute treasure of a festival that Oxford’s more adventurous music lovers – and those with even a passing interest in the sounds of the world around us – should hold close to their hearts” Nightshift
