Over a two week residency period the Pearce gallery will be used as a recording environment for experimentation with instrument building, sound design and sample based music and composition. The recordings/samples taken during these 2 weeks will be archived accordingly.


During the 2 weeks, times will be available for the public to create and experiment in the space. A timetable with signup options to book a session for recording samples and instruments will also be available. 


These sessions will be focused on recording purely acoustic/organic sounds, which can later be processed digitally if so desired.
