Simon Whetham is a sound artist who works with sound recording and playback techniques that explore sonic qualities and characteristics of materials and space. He shares his work with the public through performance, lecture presentation, installation and most importantly workshops, with which he facilitates sessions of listening exercises, technical and cultural aspects of sound, recording and playback techniques, and interactive public performances.
Simon is currently making a new work, Trace Evidence, that will be exhibited as part of Ropewalkers, an exhibition and series of events taking place at the OSR Project Space and Dawe's Twineworks, West Coker during October and November 2016.
Ropewalkers brings together new work by artists Jo Ball, Andy Parker and Simon Whetham made in response to the architecture, history and materials of Dawe’s Twinworks Museum and social history project. Produced by OSR Projects.
