Sound and the Urban Environment

My sound works series Six Families of Noise is being exhibited in a group show at Onca Gallery, starting next week. The pieces were recorded binaurally in and around Portslade as part of my residency with Blast Theory back in 2010, and respond to the 6 families of noises that Luigi Russolo identified in his Art of Noises manifesto.

Please come along if you’re in Brighton.

Sound and the Urban Environment: Exhibition & Symposium
29 May – 5 June

This exhibition and symposium at ONCA, organised by the University of Brighton, explores our auditory encounter with the urban environment and asks how we might plan for the soundscape of our future cities, homes and dwellings.

It asks in what ways can the soundscape and the practice of listening inform and make meaningful the experience of living within urban environments.

The Symposium takes place from 6pm-8pm on Tuesday 2 June. Places are free but must be booked, please register here.
