Steven Anderson

With an aim to coordinate a vocal aspect for Nothing About Us Without Us Is For Us, Steven is currently in the process of meeting up with various people in and around Govan and Partick who sing either in groups or individually. Discussions around world folk voices, religious voices, protest voices, participatory voices and Glasgow voices, and trials of oral sound beside, over and on the river will lead to an experimental presentation of live vocal performances on the 28th April.

Steven Anderson is an artist based in Glasgow with strong family links to Govan. Having studied at GSA and DJCAD, Steven works mainly in creating performances which present alongside each other; the unaccompanied voice, invited audience participation and archival artifacts. Most recently Steven created a performance event featuring Scots oral traditional singers and contemporary artists who use their voice as medium, within the site of Enlightenment portraits at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery. This was followed by an exhibition and performance at Peacock Visual Arts in Aberdeen. Previous to this he had shown work at Catalyst Arts in Belfast and as part of Instal'10 at Tramway in Glasgow.
