Showreel of DMSA students’ Sound Art works (2003-2019) as curated by Dr Kersten Glandien
with Graeme Miller
16:30-18.00pm Edward Street, Room 309 – 3rd Floor
Artist Graeme Miller looks at a trajectory of works that are linked by their unsolicited nature from night-walks across Birmingham to bell-ringing in Paris and onto his most recent voyage across Europe on an improvised rail dolly, Wild Car.
Miller’s international work spans film-making, sonic composition, installation, and performance, but common strands emerge about place and presence, witnessing and situation.

Lighthouse presents The Space in Sound: a day of talks and an evening performance exploring ways sound can occupy space.
This will take place at The Old Market on 25th March 2020.
They’ve offered us a discounted group price of 10 tickets for the price of 9. If we do a group booking this would mean we could get tickets for the symposium and the evening performances for £22.50 per person.

WARM UP FESTIVAL
Warm Up Festival, Aug 21-23 2020, is a new three-day music festival set in the pine forests of Hertfordshire: https://www.warmupfestival.co.uk/.
Our vision is to engage all the senses in an immersive environment by bringing captivating contemporary art to our woodland setting. We are looking for art in the form of unique sculptural works, curious installations, bespoke light pieces, performance art, and video work either pre-existing or site-specific proposals.
‘Home is where the house is’ is our family motto. As such, we are particularly interested to find artists that explore the concept of ‘home’ because community is at the heart of our festival. A take on the theme can be abstract or entirely literal. We are also open to other artworks/proposals that do not necessarily adhere to this concept.
Warm Up is a visionary pillar of the London club scene, earning itself a reputation as one of the most respected dance music communities in the city, famed for its legendary parties, welcoming atmosphere and forward-thinking sound palette, representing the best in techno, house, progressive and electronica.

About Ingrid Plum
Ingrid Plum (DK/UK) uses her voice with extended technique, improvisation, field recordings, percussion and electronics. Described by The Guardian as “gorgeously atmospheric vocal techniques woven around field recordings & electronics” she has performed and exhibited internationally since 2002, creating work that combines Folk Music, Contemporary Classical Music and Sound Art. Incorporating her research into folk traditions with field recordings and studying directly with Meredith Monk, her recent performances have been described as “succinct and nourishing… a luxuriant space between almost excessive precision and looser improvisation” by The Wire. Her work has been played by Late Junction on BBC Radio 3, where she was also invited to perform in session at Maida Vale Studios. Plum participated in Radio 4’s New Weird Britain and was commissioned to write a new work for International Womens Day 2019 by The Verb on BBC Radio 3.
Plum teaches workshops, is a visiting lecturer at Goldsmiths University Of London and the University of Brighton, and is an Associate Lecturer and Year Tutor at LCC. She is the founder of Bechdel, a DIY event platform for female and non-binary experimental/noise/spoken word/improv/free folk/free jazz/folk/Neo classical acts and is based between the UK and Denmark.
Joshua has been one of the winners of the Francis Chagrin Award in November 2019. This price is hosted by the UK organisation Sound and Music.

A daytime workshop with evening performances from the sonic arts group AUDINT and their affiliates.
AUDINT is a London-based art collective operating across the fields of sound, performance, theory/fiction, film and installation. Following recent exhibitions and performances at Spike Island and Tate Britain, this event opens a window into the themes explored in their recent Book UNSOUND: UNDEAD. Working at the intersection between the latest sonic theory and practice, AUDINT push contemporary sonic making and thinking into new realms, between the real and the fictional, the living and the dead.
This workshop and live event extend the collective’s research with performances and presentations from AUDINT members and collaborators, including Eleni Ikon, Agnès Gayraud, Jenna Sutela, and Anne Duffau (TBC)
Afternoon seminar // 2-4pm // SPECIFIC DISSONANCES
Eleni Ikoniadou, Al Cameron and Caleb Madden will explore the perceptual and cultural peripheries of the sonic in a seminar based around contributions to the recent AUDINT – UNSOUND: UNDEAD book.
For the past ten years the group has been researching the periphery of sonic perception (unsound) and its potential to activate a continual intersection between fiction and fact, pressuring thought to become something other than what it has been. The group’s recent volume Unsound: Undead collates 64 new essays to probe how unsound serves to activate the undead. Contributors from a variety of disciplines chart these warped zones, mapping out a zigzagging timeline stretching from the 8th century BC (the song of the Sirens), to 2013 (acoustic levitation), and speculatively extending into 2057 (the emergence of holographic and holosonic phenomena).
Evening event // 7:30-11:30PM // UNSOUND: UNDEAD * brief descriptor for each act to follow.
A series of live performance:
Eleni Ikoniadou and Caro: The Lament – (voice and live electronics)
Agnes Gayraud – (voice and glossolalia piece)

For as long as recording and communications technologies have existed, the potential of the vibrational continuum that connects sound to infrasound, ultrasound and other inaudible frequencies has been evoked to access anomalous zones of transmission between the realms of the living and the dead. For the past ten years the AUDINT group has been researching…
