Great Exhibition of the North

Making Waves (The Hexagon Experiment)

Sage Gateshead Concourse

Making Waves will showcase the next generation of young female composers, sound artists and musical innovators from the North East for a unique performance of new music featuring cutting-edge music tech and found sounds.

The show will begin with an ‘in-conversation’ featuring acclaimed musician Nadine Shah, former engineer and MP for Newcastle Central Chi Onwurah, and Professor Danielle George MBE, as they discuss their own careers and what the future holds for the female musicians and scientists of the future.

The music in this performance will be created during a week-long residency for 13-18 year olds female music makers at Sage Gateshead led by four of the North’s most exciting electronic artists (Afrodeutsche, Caro C, Mandy Wigby, Vicky Clarke).

About The Hexagon Experiment

Making Waves is the fourth event in ‘The Hexagon Experiment’ – a six-part series of ‘Friday night experiments’ bringing together pioneering women at the forefront of music, art and science.

Inspired by the creativity that led to the discovery of the Nobel-Prize winning ‘wonder material’ graphene, The Hexagon Experiment brings together the North’s most exciting musicians and scientists for six free events – from music made by robots to a spectacular tribute to an unsung heroine.

Presented by Manchester based creative music charity Brighter Sound and the National Graphene Institute at The University of Manchester, as part of the Great Exhibition of the North 2018.

The Hexagon Experiment is part of Both Sides Now – a three-year initiative run by Brighter Sound to support, inspire and showcase women in music across the North of England.
