SONIC URBANISM: REVERBERATIONS IN A NEW FIELD (BOOK LAUNCH)
Theatrum Mundi and &beyond invite you to celebrate the launch of this brand new collection of writing on Sonic Urbanism. Join us for an evening of discussion, performance and music, opening with a roundtable: ‘How could a sonic urbanism be socially and politically critical for cities now?’ with contributors Sara Adhitya, Sharon Phelan, George Kafka, John Bingham-Hall. Artist and Researcher Sharon Phelan will also be presenting a new live work, At the Threshold, a narrative soundscape incorporating field recordings, audio feedback loops and voice synthesis. The evening will culminate with drinks and a music selection by saxophonist and composer Ben Vince
A print copy of this collection of essays on sonic communities, urban composition, acoustic architectures, phonographic methods, and public performance projects, will be included in the ticket price.
