Sound Summit 3:Are you listening? Acoustic environments and the politics of sound, noise and silence

  • 16 June 2020
  • 1:00 - 2:00
  • Virtual IAS

The IAS are delighted to announce the final event of the IAS Sound Theme summits.

Visiting IAS Sound Fellows Professor Salomé Voegelin (University of the Arts London), Professor John Levack Drever (Goldsmiths), Dr Ricciarda Belgiojoso (Università Milano Bicocca) and Dr Leah Barclay (USC Sunshine Coast)

will be taking part in a webinar as part of the final Sound Summit series.

The webinar will seek to emphasise the importance of sound and sound art to human interactions with, and understandings, of their environment. The discussion will focus on the distinctions between sound, noise and silence; the politics of listening; sound and noise as they relate to particular soundscapes and environments; and the ways in which to more critically engage with sound through combining academic research and artistic practice.

This event will be chaired by Dr Allan Watson, (Loughborough University) and Dr Johanna Hällsten (London Metropolitan University).

Further information on the IAS Sound Theme can be found on the IAS website.
