Join us for a celebration of Useful Tools a free to use open source sound app created by resident artist Hannah Sawtell in partnership with interdisciplinary artist and researcher Lizzie Wilson.

For Digbeth First Friday, Hannah Sawtell is making the Useful Tools web-based sound programme available for public use in Vivid Projects, inviting audiences to explore how they can make sound by using the tool. To participate, you will need to bring a laptop/ipad/tablet with you that can access a browser (Chrome or Safari) and Wi-Fi (note you cannot use the programme on your phone).
Useful Tools builds on Sawtell’s interests in technology as an electronic sound project and was programmed collaboratively at Vivid Projects in April – June, with Old Bort, Laura Fox, Khush Kali, Indira Lakshmi, Sam Owen, Heather Reid, Davinia-Ann Robinson, Natalie Roe, Emily Scarrott & Emily Warner
