Taking inspiration from Richy Carey’s exhibition {sterero-type-music}, join Leeds-based artist Lottie Sadd for a workshop on sound and listening.

Sadd will guide the group through listening exercises inspired by composer Pauline Oliveros’ Deep Listening practice.

Following where our ears lead us, participants will explore The Tetley and its surrounds using field recording microphones, collecting snippets of sounds and voices, before returning to the gallery to create new scores, experimenting with different ways of notating sounds.

This will be a beautiful experience exploring sound, listening and personal and collective expression, making a compassionate space to share and be united by listening.

Richy Carey will interpret and fold these additional collected sounds into his existing surround-sound audio installation, which will then travel onwards to Flamm, Creative Kernow’s Cornish Art Festival.

This is open to anyone interested in listening and sound, no experience necessary, just curiosity.


Lottie Sadd (she/her) is an interdisciplinary composer-performer and workshop facilitator working across sound, gestural performance, moving image, installation, and writing. Informed by ideas of ritual, her holistic practice is broadly concerned with exposing the processes of creation. Sadd experiments primarily with long-form and improvised structures, language and text, and field recordings, inviting audiences to step outside an object-centric art experience and into these dynamic processes. Currently, she is developing her embodied practice of vocal (non-verbal and verbal) and bodily performance, responding to feminist mythologies of ‘monstrous’ women, and re-imagining corporeal and empathetic approaches to communication.
