Four Channel Sound
A sonic dialogue between two making cultures featuring field recordings from artists’ studios in Korea and ceramic production lines in Stoke-on-Trent
The three pieces of work will be exhibited together in the China Hall at Spode Works in Stoke-on-Trent and represent the culmination of our international residency programme and the Made in Korea project. A selection of the work will also be displayed at Resonance Festival in Seoul, South Korea in November (more news to follow).
CELADONAPHONIC is a conflation of two words ‘celadon’ – a type of green clay used in traditional Korean ceramics and ‘phonic’ meaning of sound. Six artists (3 Korean, 3 British) have been commissioned to make new sound works about ceramics – some have used field recordings as the basis of their work, others have evolved more conceptual processes. The works, taken together, explore the nature and practice of two very different making cultures.
The mobile app that hosts the soundwalk can be found at echoes.xyz and is available for both iOS and Android.
