The Aesthetics of Sound As Space – Gerriet K. Sharma & Angela McArthur
Gerriet K. Sharma and Angela McArthur present a concert of works composed for the IKO icosahedral loudspeaker. It uniquely inverts outside-inside spatial sound phenomena, creating a compelling sound experience.
Gerriet K. Sharma is a composer and sound artist with extensive experience in a wide range of artistic practices. Working with engineers he helped develop the IKO technology, applying artistic research practice to strengthen and perfect the design. Sharma was Edgard Varése guest professor (DAAD) at the Electronic Studio of TU Berlin. Angela McArthur is artist-in-residence at the Institut für Elektronische Musik (IEM) in Graz. She has had recent exhibits at Ars Electronica (in collaboration with the BBC), Tate Modern (in collaboration with Nathaniel Mann) and Sheffield DocFest.
The Loudspeaker Orchestra presents immersive acoustic experiences through programmed concerts of multichannel sound design, sonic art and electroacoustic music. Regular concerts, featuring work by international artists alongside students of Sound Design, take place in and around Greenwich.
