Betreff: Sound + Environment 2017 – Call for Works and Papers

Dear all,

We are seeking proposals for papers, workshops, compositions, installations and interventions at ‘Sound + Environment 2017’ (University of Hull, 29th June – 2nd July 2017).

‚Sound + Environment 2017‘ is a four day conference bring together artists and scientists to explore the ways in which sound can deepen our understanding of environments. Confirmed keynotes so far are BAFTA award-winning sound artist and field recordist Chris Watson and Australian sound artist Leah Barclay. The conference will see the launch of a specially commissioned surround-sound installation from Chris Watson tracing the course of the Humber River from ‚Trent Falls to Spurn Point‘. A number of other sound installations and performances will be featured in collaboration with Hull UK City of Culture and the PRS New Music Biennial.

Through exploring scientific and artistic approaches together, we hope to engage with sound in order to create complementary ways of investigating, understanding, and taking action.

Please see: soundenvironment.net for further information.

Best wishes,
