About Full of Noises

Full of Noises is a sound art and new music organisation based in a public park on Cumbria’s Furness Peninsula. We produce and commission new work from contemporary composers and sound artists through a programme of residencies, performances and public realm installations, whilst touring events are produced in partnership with other arts organisations and regional and national agencies.

Since forming in 2009, we have produced over one hundred events, including four biennial festivals, showcasing new work by over two hundred artists. Starting life in the former canteen building of a Trident submarine plant, Full of Noises has hosted artists ranging from Faust, AGF, Hildur Gudnadottir and Tetsuo Kogawa to Laura Cannell, Lee Patterson, Lee Gamble and Ryoko Akama. Touring events have taken place in venues including London’s Cafe OTO, the Liverpool Biennial, the Sao Paulo Biennial, Beacons Festival and National Trust Castles in the Lake District.

Current projects include:

We have been an Arts Council England NPO since 2011.
