Sarmen Almond: Vice Body Voice
Sarmen Almond melts her voice into her own harmonics, electronic transformation and external sounds.
Postcards from the Volcano is a sonic collaboration between musician, Stephan Barrett and artist-producer, Helen Frosi.
Born in 2014 out of an interest in deep- and critical listening and the site-specificity, socio-cultural- and creative possibilities of sound, Postcards from the Volcano focus their practice on the poetics of landscape, nature and space in relation to the (non) human.
Their practice spans performance, experimental radio and fixed media. Works often interweave location recordings with spoken word pieces, sound art, sonic experiments, sound collage, classical, contemporary, folk and many other forms of music.
Postcards from the Volcano have performed live at various venues: 100 Years Gallery, Anatums Abode, Bechdel, Goldsmiths University of London, Harts Lane Gallery, The Mary Ward Centre, The Road to Mount Helicon, and curated and produced a series of radio shows focusing on the poetics of place for SonicaFM.
