Something from Nothing: the absence of paper makes music
Saturday 5 May, 2pm

Join artist and musician Adam Simmons to explore the musical potential of paper. Adam performedat fortyfivedownstairs with Collider in 2011. We’re delighted he has returned as an exhibitor in 2012.Escape your paperwork and learn about someone else’s!

‘In performance I seek to make my music unique to the time and space at that given moment.With respect to my music boxes, it is necessary to interact with them. I don’t want people to justsee art or hear it – I want them to feel it, touch it and do it for themselves!’
