Sound TARDIS is a new audio visual installation that was exhibited at Nottingham Contemporary for two days: Saturday 8 March to Monday 10 March 2014.  The Cutting Room and Graham Elstone have created this installation, with contributions from young people across Nottingham.  Sound TARDIS will be multi-sensory using light, music and sound to create an interactive space for exploration and discovery. It is a fantastic environment for family’s to visit and enjoy and will be open to the public all weekend. There is also an opportunity for groups of young people to have guided tours of the space whilst the gallery is closed on Monday 10 March.

 

Over the past few months Graham Elstone have been delivering educational workshops with Stone Soup Alternative Education Provision, Lake Enders, Crocus Fields Outreach Service, and The Queens Medical Education Centre. Participants engaged, explored their views and personal experiences of sound and music.  Young people were guided to create and manipulate their own sounds that will be presented within this exciting installation.

Young People

QMC Education Centre - The Hospital School  provides high quality education for children admitted to Nottingham Children’s Hospital. The teaching and support staff are highly skilled and experienced in working with children and young people with a range of health and medical issues. They engaged with Sound Tardis in February 2014, facilitating two workshops within the education centre, engaging their young people in the creative application of music technology.

 

Stone Soup Alternative Education Provision is a free school based in Nottingham. The school works with young people that are not engaged with mainstream education and supports students to develop the skills necessary to re-engage with education and make significant progress in their personal and academic development. They first engaged with Sound TARDIS in January 2014, and have since participated in 3 workshops held at Nottingham Contmporary.

 

Lake Enders is an arts group for adults with learning difficulties run by Meander Theatre Arts. It provides a wide variety of arts opportunities and is based at the Lakeside Arts Centre. Graham Elstone has worked with the group to explore the use of sound in February 2014.

 

Crocus Fields offer a wide range of residential short breaks for young people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and autistic spectrum disorders that are designed to meet the needs of individuals. Sound TARDIS held a workshop as part of a two-day half-term residential held at their centre in The Meadows. 

 

Oakfield School is one of the UK’s leading schools for education for those with learning and physical disabilities. The ethos of the school is inclusion, learning and creativity. Sound TARDIS 2 is working with students and music staff on a one-day workshop, exploration of sound to produce aural work for the Sound TARDIS 2 exhibition.

Artists

The Cutting Room is a curatorial organisation initiated by Jennifer Ross and Clare Harris, producing events to engage and inspire new audiences through digital new media, film and performance. Both individuals have a strong working interest in the field of moving image and digital new media artwork. Although their interests run parallel, Harris and Ross maintain different perspectives, which they hope ensure a freshness in the shows they curate.

 

Graham Elstone works as an artist, creative educator and project/technical manager. Much of Graham’s creative work involves the use of technology within a mixed medium approach, resulting in installation work, performance and a fusion of artforms.  He has worked regionally, nationally and internationally, independently or in artist collectives such as Low Brow Trash and Engagement Party.  Graham has been working as a creative educator for twenty-three years facilitating interactive projects for shools (primary and secondary), youth groups and young people focused organisations.  Specialising in film, animation, music, performancce and installation.
