THUD! An interactive sound installation by Jakub Rokita
17 November - 17 December 2022
THUD! is an audio-responsive sound installation based on the ideas of active participation and co-creation: the sound installation continuously records and overlays accidental sounds of the audience members passing through the gallery space and assembles a sonic landscape from all the accidental sounds like foot shuffles while constantly replaying the emerging soundscape back into the room. A preview on 19 November, 2-5pm, will feature live performances by jazz and electroacoustic musicians PaulJolly, Rick Jensen and a live stream by a noise artist and DIY experimentalist, Aurora, hailing from Slovakia.
Jakub Rokita is an intermedia artist, photographer and a musician specialising in sound installations, video and photography, often in collaborative and participatory contexts. As a cultural activist, he supports grassroots initiatives (x-collab, mopomoso, AVXLuton) and works with emerging and aspiring artists from Bedfordshire
