We would like to invite you to attend the Supersonix conference – an international exploration of the art and science of sound – in the Exhibition Road cultural quarter of London.
The conference, 20-23 June 2012, is a partnership between the Society for Literature, Science and the Arts Europe (SLSA EU) and the Exhibition Road Cultural Group. It will bring together artists, scientists and academics for lectures and workshops, experiments and performances. Supersonix will explore the subject of sound through a multidisciplinary approach.
We are very pleased to be able offer a range of internationally respected speakers who will talk about their significant contributions to the field of sound, aural spaces, listening and recording.
Keynote speakers include scientist and engineer Sarah Angliss, audio engineer and author Barry Blesser, artist Rebecca Horn with musician and composer Hayden Chisholm, David McAlpine (Ear Institute University College London), musicologist Louis Niebur, neuroscientist Sophie Scott, media historian Jonathan Sterne and artist-curator David Toop, alongside presenters and panellists who continue to reshape the field of sound practices and research into sound.
We are also very proud to be able to present live sound performances by Mira Calix, Kaffe Matthews and Jana Winderen at the Science Museum, as part of the conference.
