with Melika Ngombe Kolongo, AKA Nkisi. A new durational sound installation and score as part of an ongoing investigation into invisible forces using sound will be near the train station and entitled “The Skin Of Time”
3.Light and Sound Bath
The intersection of wellbeing, science, technology and music will be crossed with a special commission, “Light and Sound Bath” with Debbie Chia. where participants are bathed in flickering light and experience a personal "visible” frequency entrainment of rich colours and geometric patterns, guided by specially commissioned live sound works from festival artists The Black Dog, Lo Shea, 96 Back and Prequel Tapes and Debbie Chia.
4. Workshops,Talks Debate (Various venues)
Workshops are once again a big part of the programme this year, covering topics such as live coding, DJing, modular synthesis, well-being and more. Talks and debate are back in full force with some superb panels covering many current issues, from grass roots organising and diversity issues to artificial intelligence and cyborg activism. We’ll also be having a special artist talk section where artists from the programme are interviewed one on one, hosted by Joe Muggs, Ifeoluwa and more TBA.
We’ve worked with Sheffield Doc Fest to bring a full film programme to No Bounds 2019 including Rita Maia and Vasco Viana’s Lisbon Beat, an exploration of contemporary Lisbon electronica and Memento Stella: Makino Takashi’s amazing immersive and hypnotic piece of film art, +6Gain which follows 2 individuals dealing with the monotony of their lives through Gabber, Father Figure exploring Vogueing and we’ve partnered with Memory Dance to explore archival material exploring issues of memory. This will happen over the entire weekend.
Saturday Rave @ Hope Works
Our Saturday Rave at Hope Works in conjunction with Resident Advisor is the biggest we've ever done. It's a celebratory exploration over 3 rooms with some of the biggest artists in electronic music as well as a choice selection of the up and coming talents who are creating waves and bring a whole new energy to the table.
The Black Madonna
rRoxymore B2B Violet
Gábor Lázár (Live)
This is essentially split into two different strands. First we are exploring the intersection of sound and well being with ambient and drone in combination with different environments and practices. From Light and Sound Bath Pt 2 at The Holt to The Black Dog (Live) in Heeley Swimming Pool Sunday will be about going deep and working with sound as a healing force.
Second we are throwing our closing party at The FoodHall. This is always a really special end to the weekend. For those wanting to wind up rather than wind down we have a superb programme of music featuring Broken Fm (live), Stevie Cox, GRL. Linnemann and more to be announced.
We are also including a FREE section of our programme at the iconic Millennium Gallery and we will be working with some of Sheffield's best small venues and spaces such as Testone Factory, The Holt, The Mowbray, Foodhall and Heeley Swimming Pool again over the weekend.
Love and Hope.
