As both Finer and Manco’s doctoral studies at Roehampton University 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 2010; 1-4pm
Free admission, please contact email@example.com to reserve a place
Ella Finer and Fabrizio Manco have each chosen a selection of speakers to come together and describe what sound means to them; to provide an interdisciplinary hearing and sharing of ideas and definitions, leading to an open discussion.
Speakers are Professor Jonathan Ashmore, Ansuman Biswas, Yvon Bonenfant, Ross Brown, Stephen 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.
‘Building Sound’ is Part of the AHRC ‘Beyond Text’ Programme, as a student-led initiative.
