phpThumb_generated_thumbnail

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.

https-cdn.evbuc.comimages33529001592105960211original

Mon 6 November 2017

18:30 – 20:30 GMT

Somerset House

London

WC2R 1LA

 

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 info@musichackspace.org.

There are as many sounds as possible ways to be woman.
As many women as possible feminisms.
As many feminisms as possible sounds.

For the 2017 program at ifa Gallery Berlin, Anna Raimondo proposes for Saout Radio a sonic travel into the universe of sound art exploring its different possibilities, the richness of its languages and the multitude of its sensuous experience. Traveling from radio and sound art to video and interventions in the public space, the program proposes an understanding of sound as a political and aesthetic contamination, as a delocalised and delocalising practice that, by moving across different geographies is capable of translating there other cultural and mental places.

“Sonic panoramas” proposes multiple approaches to sonic arts from different generations of artists, for creating multiple aesthetic experiences for visitors and for opening a space of reflection about how sound can translate geographies over and beyond boundaries. 

“Sonic Panoramas” is made up of a hearing station inside the gallery and diverse radio shows that are accessible in the gallery, on this digital platform and on the Saout Radio website. Each radio show, of one hour duration, will consist of a series of selected radio and sound works responding to the specific concepts of each chapter. They will also be broadcasted on different radio stations in Germany such as Reboot.fm or Radio Corax, but also on stations all over the world such as Radio Panik in Brussels, Radio Tsonami in Chile and others.

Sound Art Matters, Aarhus, Denmark

sound art matters

Keynote talk

“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.
