14 January 2010
Part of the AHRC Beyond Text Programme, as a student-led initiative.
Ella Finer and Fabrizio Manco present 'Building Sound', an on-going research experiment in ways to describe and articulate experiences of sound making and reception within theatre, theory and practice.
As both Finer and Manco's doctoral studies are concerned with an interrogation of sound within theatrical space, the aim of building sound is to provide thinkers and practitioners an opportunity to offer their own ideas from their respective practices about sound within an actual and a virtual space.
Both the symposium and website are investigations into interdisciplinary dialogues about working with sound.
THE 'BUILDING SOUND' SYMPOSIUM
Olivier Stalls Foyer, National Theatre, Southbank, London.
Friday 5th February; 1pm-4pm (with brief interval)
Speakers include Finn Andrews (The Veils), Ansuman Biswas, Steve Cleary, Marcia Farquhar, Simon Fisher Turner, Maggie Pittard and Mariella Greil & J. Milo Taylor
THE 'BUILDING SOUND' WEBSITE
As well as hosting information about the project and storing archival sound from the symposium, the form of this website itself is the result of an attempt to question how to build a website beyond text.
The concept for the 'Building Sound' Website is by Ella Finer and Fraser Muggeridge, and designed by Fraser Muggeridge Studio and Wolfram Weidner.
