Sound Is Sound Is Sound event in South East London

A new series of events showcasing South East London's DIY talent will start this October at Lewisham's Albany Theatre

Lewisham Arthouse will host the first in a new series of events at the Albany Theatre in South East London. Called Sound Is Sound Is Sound, it aims to highlight the varied nature of DIY music within London's SE postcode.

Programmed to run every six months, this first edition takes place on 24 October, with a live performance from Albert Newton, a longterm project currently consisting of John Edwards, Pat Thomas and Charles Hayward. Other confirmed artists include Aine O'Dwyer, the Norwegian electro pop duo Soft As Snow and the electronic trio The Balloons. Other events include a workshop with TV and film soundtrack composers John Lunn (Downton Abbey) and Frank Byng (The Mill), Charles Hayward presenting a workshop/performance called The Bell Agency, described as "a simple and focused game structure that explores the possibilities of improvisation outside of genre and technique", as well as installations and interventions running throughout the day.
