I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Soundings is a performative listening event which acknowledges the perception of sound as an embodied activity, engaging senses beyond the boundaries of audition.


Rather than seeking a single description of hearing or listening, Soundings aims to create a space in which different perspectives can coexist. The programme features live works from:

Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley

Rowland Hill

Jessa Mockridge

Jo Pester

Karolina Stellaki

More TBA

Each artist has been invited to respond to these ideas by adapting pre-existing live work for this context, and to include non-audio approaches or sound equivalences (such as subtitles, vibrations, visuals, gestures, movement etc) in consideration of audience members of different hearing capacities.

Transcriptions of all text works will be provided.
