At Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, artists in residence are welcomed into our venue to create new projects, spend time using our beautiful Steinway piano or simply to use the many studio spaces on offer in our building. Many of the outcomes from these periods of time you will see peppered through forthcoming seasons or as part or larger touring projects both nationally and internationally. 

Several artists are also with us for a year, as Associate Artists, spending time with us thinking, making and creating in our spaces. 

Meet our 2017-2018 Associate Artists

POPPY ACKROYD

Poppy Ackroyd is a composer from London, currently based in Brighton. Classically trained on violin and piano, she makes music by manipulating and multi-tracking sounds from just these two instruments.

Her debut album ‘Escapement’ was released in December 2012 and a DVD – ‘Escapement Visualised’ – featuring bespoke visuals by Lumen for each track on the album, was released in September 2014. ‘Feathers’, her second album, followed in November 2014, and builds on the concept behind her debut, with most of the sounds again coming from the violin and the piano, however this time the tracks also feature other keyboard and string instruments. Currently she is in the studio writing her third full length album to be released on the One Little Indian label.

Poppy is a member of Hidden Orchestra (Tru Thoughts Recordings) and has worked on numerous projects with other musicians, artists, filmmakers, animators, dancers and actors.

Poppy has been working on new material in our spaces and is the support act with Hidden Orchestra at ACCA on 9 December, as well as playing with them in this headline show. 



ANNA MEREDITH 

Anna Meredith is a composer, producer and performer of both acoustic and electronic music.  Her sound is frequently described as ‘uncategorisable’ and ‘genre-defying’ and straddles the different worlds of contemporary classical, art pop, electronica, ambient installations and experimental rock - or as the Guardian said: “majestic bangers”…

Her music has been performed everywhere from the BBC Last Night of the Proms to flashmob body-percussion performances in the M6 Services, plus PRADA & Fendi fashion campaigns, numerous films, installations and documentaries, pop festivals, clubs and classical concert halls worldwide and broadcast on Radio 1, 2, 3, 4 & 6.

Anna is working on new material in our spaces and making use of our stunning Steinway Piano.



FELIX THORN 

Felix Thorn is an artist who creates music using audio-visual sculptures designed and constructed by himself. The project ‘Felix’s Machines’ was originally built as an acoustic set of machines intended for gallery exhibitions, installations and intimate performances. His work has been seen at the Pompidou Centre and Tate Modern. 

Thorne spent time in our spaces creating his largest machine to date this summer. Plaid joined Felix for part of his residency to write new material together and work further on the projections for this new piece. Felix’s Machines & the band Plaid then performed work on the machine at ACCA, as part of the Autumn season and Brighton Digital Festival. The music created by the duo and Thorn will make up a new album of material to be released soon on Warp and which will tour internationally.
