About Secret Technology

Secret Technology places emphasis on a communal approach to learning, taking place in social spaces like pubs and record shops. Each session, guest artists present a mixture of workshop and discussions around aesthetics, wellbeing, technology and their intersections.

Discover and share new ideas that can be applied across all forms of electronic music, from pop to jungle to experimental.


SONAMB is the new musical project by sound artist Vicky Clarke. Working with sound sculpture, DIY electronics and human-machine systems, she explores our relationship to technology through sonic materiality, considering human agency in seemingly autonomous systems, post-industrial echoes and the techno-emotional states we experience through these interactions. Her work takes the form of self-built electronic instruments and sculpture, live performance, digital art, research and installation. Winner of the Oram Award 2020, for the past two years she has been artist in residence at NOVARS, University of Manchester exploring musique concrete and machine learning.
