Ligatures is a spoken word event collaboration between oHPo Radio at Sheffield Hallam University Department of Art & Design, Soft-Shell Radio at Glasgow School of Art, and Creative Writing at the University of Glasgow, featuring work from students and alumni from the MLitt Art Writing at GSA, the MA Creative Writing at UoG, and the MFA Fine Art, MA Creative Writing, and the Culture and Creative Research Institute at Sheffield Hallam. Writing and language practices have a long history of transcending the boundaries of institutional disciplines and genre categories, and we see Ligatures as a celebration of this unruly lineage. We would like to thank Donald Butler (GSA) for hosting this event.

Coarticulates is a search for a hillfort near Bakewell, exploring feelings of place, connection and movement. Leaning in to hum other bodies, anticipation and concentration find form in gulps, sniffs, strings, crouches and back ache. Night sounds trawled by spectrogram are worked by voice. It documents the early days of creative endeavours, capturing some of the obstacles presented by the first lockdown in 2020 and explores the nature of a collaborative relationship. Is a sound poem. Is music, microbe motions and poetry. Is a collection of fragments from the research project Scripting Silence, which uses methods of expanded translation in relation to silent era screenplays to explore modes of speaking and silencing trauma, particularly in psychiatric settings.

The programme features researchers based within the Culture and Creativity Research Institute at Sheffield Hallam University from the Art, Design and Media Research Centre, the Humanities Research Centre and Lab4Living, and from the University of Sheffield Sound House.

Adaptive Technologies is a suite of five works by Phil Waterworth:

  • Reckless Bonfires: notes towards an understanding of the studio

  • To Do List

  • Reading List

  • An Inventory

  • (re)Site(al) Sheffield City Centre

These works explore the intersections of digital voice recognition software technologies and class as manifested by a northern accent, and of the physical adaptive technology of the wheelchair and disabled access to space. The sounds of wheels negotiating the surfaces of the city are an analogue mirror of the voice recognition programme negotiating spoken words.

Phil Waterworth is an interdisciplinary artist currently studying on the Master of Fine Arts course at Sheffield Hallam University.
