Sound Generator: Sound UK announces first artists in its new artist development programme

Sound UK's Sound Generator artists 2021

Sound Generator is Sound UK's new artist development programme, intended to support a diverse range of early-career artists to develop excellent, adventurous new work. Following an open call, the first group of artists have been named, these are:

  • Natalie Sharp is a disabled artist at the forefront of what The Quietus described as 'New Weird Britain': "a new wave of underground musicians, creating immersive worlds for their audiences to participate in."
  • Jordan Edge works at the intersection of experience design, sound art and fictional worlds. They present non-human narratives through material forms of expression
  • Alex Ho is an award-winning British-Chinese composer based in London and co-director of Tangram, an artist collective catalysing transnational imagination and celebrating the vitality of Chinese cultures. 
  • NikNak is devoted to developing her distinctive practice as a DJ  Turntablist, sound artist/composer, producer, tutor, sound engineer and radio presenter. She was the first black Turntablist to win the Oram Awards in 2020. 
  • Lori E Allen and Deborah Wale are inter-disciplinary artists working in soundscape, performance, spoken word, experimental composition, illustration and printing.  
  • Chisara Agor is an inter-disciplinary artist whose work spans music, theatre, film and art. Her practice is grounded in her philosophical practice and creation of art work that reimagines and critiques worlds, while engaging local communities
     

Each artist is awarded £2000 each to research and develop their idea across 6 months (April to September 2021). This includes creating a short audio or video sample and proposal for its delivery.
