A participatory music drawing event using Silent Disco technology. This event is a chance for anyone to try out music drawing by drawing alongside artist Naomi Kendrick in the Band on The Walls club space, which will become both silent disco and enormous drawing surface for the night.

The fascinating method of drawing music Naomi Kendrick has developed has the act of listening and physical response is at it’s core. Through drawing in this way she attempts to bring an immediate connection between mind and body that results in a drawing. This process often involves working with her eyes closed and using both hands, moving in response to the layers and speed of the sound heard, and building up an energetic drawing of layered marks.

This event is to encourage other people to draw and respond to the music in their own unique way.

The silent disco technology will silently deliver an eclectic mix of music, selected in collaboration with musicians, to head phones worn by both Kendrick and the participants as they draw. Two different channels of music can be chosen from via the headphones meaning you could be drawing classical music whilst your neighbour draws reggae! Every now and again the music will be ‘played out’ to be heard by everyone, connecting peoples movements and drawings with the music. this will create a playful space where the idea of a solitary, internal perception and a shared act of creativity can be explored.

This is an accessible event open to all ages.
