About OptoPhonic


Held on Sat 26th July at The Montgomery Theatre, bang in the centre of Sheffield, The OptoPhonic Workshop will be nested within the city-wide Tramlines festival as a fringe event… With the streets heaving with attentive ears, the OptoPhonic Workshop is on a fishing-mission to engage fresh new brains in the world of sonic experimentation… we’ll be hooking and reeling in adventurous new listeners, as well as back trolling for suspended crappies (our dear established crowds).

As the inaugural festival of new Sheffield collective Peak Signal 2 Noise we are very proud to acknowledge funding from Arts Council England and support from our media partners The Wire magazine and Sheffield Live! Radio & TV

2-6pm… The Workshop is OPEN… free entry* Come and explore our workshops, installations, talks, films…. build an instrument, make some noise!
*Some workshops need booking and a small fee to secure your spot – but you’ll get free tea + cake! Book a place here!

6-11pm… Performances… tickets £5 waged, £3 unwaged/u21 See our workshop hosts and more as they bring you their unique take on sound art… Buy tickets here!

Alongside this – all day – we will have oodles of merch from regional independent labels and The Wire mag, cakes, tea and a selection of very fine (cheap) booze… what more could you dream of?
