Writing Sound / Significant Landscapes

Between the 5th and 10th November, Oxford Brookes University, St Columba’s Church and the Holywell Music Room will play host to Significant Landscapes, a diverse series of events supported by the Sonic Art Research Unit.

A full programme for these events can be downloaded here, but some details are below:

7th November / 2pm – 6pm /  Drama Studio, Richard Hamilton Building, Oxford Brookes, OX3 0BP.

Writing Sound is a project of the Sonic Art Research Unit (SARU) that takes the form of an annual symposium. Writing Sound explores connections between listening and writing, sound and text, audition and record. Patrick Farmer – curator of this year’s symposium – has invited practitioners from the fields of visual art, cultural geography, experimental composition, and sound art, to join him in sharing their thinking and writing, their approaches to recording the experience of reception, and negotiating the complex and subtle relationship of location, action, sound and word.

Taking part in the symposium will be:

Salomé Voegelin – Airplanes landing.

David R J Stent – You Hear Intimate Proximity.

Michael Pisaro – A lot of silence.

Amy Cutler – ‘Sung through the forest mirror’: The forest echo and non-singular language.

Daniela Cascella – Listening, Reading, Writing.

Patrick Farmer – What shall we love if not the enigma?

 

9th November / Doors at 7:30pm for an 8:00pm start /  St Columba’s Church, Alfred Street, Oxford, OX1 4EH.
