Full of Noises automaton

In production: An automaton for Full of Noises Festival, Barrow-in-Furness. Covid lockdown permitting, this will be revealed to the public in summer 2021.

Ealing Feeder – robotic, polyphonic carillon

A 28 note robotic, polyphonic carillon built by Sarah Angliss to play riffs beyond the envelope of human performance. The machine enables tangible performances of algorithmic music controlled by a laptop.

The Machinery – tourable video triptych

A tourable, large-scale video triptych of The Machinery, created by Sarah Angliss, Caroline Radcliffe and video artist John Harrison in 2018. This project was supported using public funding by Arts Council England.

Automatic pipe organ

A polyphonic 64-pipe self-playing table-top pipe organ, exhibited at Supersonic’s All Ears Festival, 2015. This was an attempt to make a portable automatic instrument that could play pneumatic versions of classic disco and electro hits and that was loud enough for festivals and parties.

Sonakinatography

Recreating a 1970s algorthmic dance piece by pen and paper-based systems artist Channa Horwitz

Reanimating submarine HMS Alliance

Researching and creating a generative 50-channel soundscape to reanimate the submarine HMS Alliance. Informed by detailed research with veteran submariners.

Ventricle

One of my earliest automata, Ventricle is an oxblood red vintage handbag about the same age as my own heart. It opens and closes continually, in the rhythm of a human heartbeat. Exhibited at Kinetica 2011 then selected for temporary display in Gavin Turk and Deborah Curtis’ House of Fairytales.
