I am delighted to have been invited to talk about my perspective of music as a Deaf musician at the SPARC Socio-Sonic Symposium on September 14th this year. Please see below for details:
"This symposium will take a cross-disciplinary approach, digging deeper into sonic sociality. While the social aspects of music-making are well-documented, the sociality of sound is less often discussed in detail. The SPARC Symposium 2018 will bring together practitioners and researchers from a wide variety of musical and non-musical backgrounds for two days of spoken presentations, discussion, installation, film screenings and performances.
The keynote speaker will be Maria Lisogorskaya, while invited participants include Toby O'Connor, Corey Mwamba, Sam MacKay, Matilde Meireles, Lauren Redhead, and Georgia Rodgers.
DAY 1 // Friday 14th September, 9:30 AM - 7 PM Music Department at City, University of London Northampton Square, Clerkenwell (EC1V 0HB) University Building, room B200
DAY 2 // Saturday 15th September, 10:30 AM - 4 PM IKLECTIK Old Paradise Yard, Waterloo (SE1 7LG)
