Channeling – a kinetic presentation by Simon Whetham
Part installation, part performance, Channeling is an exploration of sounds generated through activating salvaged mechanical and motor devices through the use of environmental sound recordings.
The project began in Clans and Marseille, France during the lockdowns of 2020, and continues to develop and evolve through residencies in Switzerland, The Netherlands and now Austria as new sounds and discarded devices from each location are incorporated.

Since 2005 Simon Whetham has developed a practice of working with sonic activity as a material for creation. He often use environmental sounds, employing a variety of methods and techniques in order to obtain often unnoticed and obscure sonic phenomena. When developing a performance or installation, the space and the objects within are considered and included. He has composed works published through labels including Mappa (SK), Crónica (PT) and Line (USA). In 2020 he received the Arts Council England emergency grant, in 2017 the British Council supported my participation in the Tsonami Festival, Chile, and twice he received the Grant for the Arts from the Arts Council England, to attend the Mamori Sound Project, Amazon rainforest, Brazil, 2007; and to organise the cultural exchange project ‘Active Crossover’ in 2009. His practice also covers giving active listening and field recording workshops internationally. This includes workshops for children and young people, which began in Medellín, Colombia in 2013, and has led to larger projects in Norway and Australia, and with unaccompanied minors in a refugee camp in Munich, Germany in 2014.
