A symposium exploring ideas around sound and its tactile qualities.
The discourse around touch and the tactile has been growing in recent years. Within music, this conversation is mainly dominated by the integration of haptics with sound technology and the way in which music ‘touches’ us emotionally.
This symposium aims to explore the deeply embodied experience that is hearing and listening and add to this ever growing field of practice and research. Composers and sound artists, alongside a ceramicist, a landscape architect and a surgeon, will consider this tactile experience from an open perspective, including the political, social, and aesthetic.
Short provocations by thirteen speakers and an evening concert on the first day will form the basis for a round table discussion and an afternoon concert on the second day. Curated by Claudia Molitor. The symposium discussion will be followed with a performance by Tullis Rennie.
Friday 22nd September at City, University of London and Saturday 23rd September at IKLECTIK.
