LIVE in a Northern Town is a two-day programme of live performances, workshops and interdisciplinary collaborations featuring musicians and artists from across the North of England programmed in partnership with Islington Mill and Fat Out Music.
Two workshops taking place on Saturday at The NewBridge Project: Gateshead will engage audiences in sound making through drawing and collaborative and experimental music practices.
Coatic Sequence (Manchester) / EXPERIMENTATION WITH ‘GLEN’ SYNTHESISER

Coatic Sequence is a collaborative sound and visual project, who use a hand built modular synthesiser ‘Glen’ to amplify drawing and improvise visual and sonic compositions. Their workshop invites you to experiment with ‘Glen’, using different drawing techniques to produce and experiment with sound.
Russell Gray (Girl Sweat, Leeds) / INTRODUCTION TO EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC

Girl Sweat’s Russell Gray will lead a workshop ‘Introduction to Experimental Music’ which emphasises that everyone has the ability to make interesting music, even with no musical training. In this workshop you will explore noise, drone and improvisation.
LIVE in a Northern Town celebrates and continues the Mill’s long-standing commitment to supporting a local music programme as well as collaboration between visual artists and musicians. The Mill will present a programme of LIVE events bringing musicians from across the North to Newcastle for two days and nights of special collaborations, workshops and performances.
