Curator & Artists in conversation, 18 November 2017, 2pm – 4pm
New Art Exchange, Nottingham, Admission: FREE
A discussion with Sounds Like Her curator Christine Eyene and sound artists Ain Bailey and Linda O’Keeffe. The conversation will consider their trajectory into sound, and instances where gender has impacted their approach, be it in terms of legacy to draw from, narrative to include within their work, challenges to overcome, or conversely, as a matter to put aside in order to focus on the medium and technique only. The discussion will also address archiving, education, access to technology and sensory abilities from an intersectional critical perspective, as inscribed within the Sounds Like Her exhibition and the participants endeavour to challenge the male-dominated and Eurocentric frameworks that have for so long informed this creative field.

Join Music Hackspace and Sound and Music at this free edit-a-thon event, raising the profile of women in the British Music Collection – the UK’s national archive for new music – as it celebrates its 50th anniversary.
The British Music Collection is a constantly growing resource, but still not representative of UK society, and this needs to change! Come and join us, chat and make new friends, celebrate women composers and sound artists who should be featured and help us (at least partially) set the world to rights.
The evening will consist of an introductory talk by special guest Cathy Lane (Co-Director at CRiSAP), with further guests (tbc) acting as facilitators, before we crack on using our shared knowledge and the internet to create new composer profiles and add more information to the British Music Collection website. Free drinks, snacks, new music and social justice! No prior knowledge or experience necessary. Please bring your own laptop.
Generously supported by the Ambache Trust.
The venue is located on the ground floor of Somerset House and is fully wheelchair accessible with widened doors and an accessible toilet. If you have any other access requirements, whatever they may be, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate them.
Doors for this event will open at 18:30. The talk will begin at 19:00 with time for Q&A afterwards. Drinks will be available from the bar next to the entrance to the New Wing of Somerset House.
If you have any questions about this event please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

“Why not our voices? New listenings and new worlds in the sonic imaginary”
We live in sound, it is all around us. We are implicated in the social relationships and ideologies that we hear reflected back to us. Sound art offers the chance to critique the world that we hear and to produce new and different possibilities. Are sound artists taking up the challenge of offering new ways of knowing or changing the world and does this need new ways of listening and understanding? Can sound art or listening act as tools for radical change by ‘de-conditioning’ our listening and help us cross linguistic, cultural, geographic, ethnic, gendered, specied and sexual prejudicial borders? This presentation will consider how a new listenings might lead to a richer more inclusive sound art that can embrace and celebrate difference.
This Wednesday, 27th April 4pm – 6pm, G19, Old Mining Building, University of Leeds. Invitied for a Research Seminar as part of a new research centre: Centre for Audio Visual Experimentation (CAVE).
