Workshop: Record Your Own Voice with Aleks Kolkowski
To complement our screening of Brighton Rock, we’re pleased to present a workshop inspired by the gramophone record at the heart of the film’s story. Record your own voice straight onto disc using an authentic 1950s record-cutting machine; specially designed for recording your own voice, the machine allows you to make a 45rpm 2-minute ‘voice letter’ or audio message. Perform poetry, sing a song or tell a story, play an instrument, record a marriage proposal or a message to yourself – whatever you like!
Aleks Kolkowski is a composer, violinist, sound artist and researcher born and based in London. In a career spanning more than 30 years as a professional musician, he has appeared at major festivals worldwide and recorded for numerous record labels with various ensembles, bands and as a solo performer.
Small groups or families are welcome to cut one disc between them.
Presented in association with CINECITY The Brighton Film Festival, supported by Arts Council England
