The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Lee Affen leads a workshop exploring sounds around us – tuning into audio and how it can ‘place’ us. Looking at the value of listening, recording with phones, putting sounds into a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation), and layering the sounds to create a unique sound scape.

Lee Affen is a Composer, Music Producer and Sound Designer. His passion for music has led him to work in bands, write for singers and compose for theatre, film and dance. Lee’s work includes the composition of new and original live scores for the 1920s silent films Metropolis, Nosferatu and Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans. Lee was also MD for Othello at Lancaster Castle, composer for The Bare Project’s Time Passes.

Lee’s recent work has seen him composing a score for the dance piece The Thief, The Fox and The Phoenix, composing and designing a score for the Bare Project’s immersive theatre piece How to Survive the Blitz and Other Things and writing and performing a new score for the 1928 film The Passion of Joan of Arc. Lee composed for the dance piece ‘Cotton.’ He has worked on Utopia Theatre's How Far Apart. Alongside this, Lee also delivers music workshops and has worked on community based arts events and festivals around the UK.

Workshops and masterclasses in Utopia Theatre’s Creative Hub are for people of African origin aged 16 and above.
