{stereo – type – music} explores how different publishing practices can inform the ways we listen to each other, through a surround sound work and an accompanying newsprint publication of scores, stories, letters and texts.

Considering listening to be an innately collaborative act, Richy Carey creates music that comes from collectively composed scores and recordings made from multiple perspectives. {stereo – type – music} is made from recordings of choral singing sessions, memories of newspaper callers, graphic scoring workshops, field recording classes, the vast factory floor of DC Thomson’s print works and the intimate handmade letter presses of Quarto Press.

Carey will lead a singing workshop on Saturday October 21st, 2pm – 5pm, that will explore the kinds of solidarity that come from listening, moving and tuning together. There’s no wrong way to sound. All voices welcome. No previous singing experience required.

{stereo – type – music} was co-commissioned by Art Night, The Tetley, Leeds with support from Creative Kernow and The Elephant Trust and premiered at Art Night Dundee in June 2023.
