Sound Diaries conference


4th June 2009, 1000-1700 Oxford Brookes University

The Sonic Art Research Unit at Oxford Brookes is hosting a conference focusing on the collection, organisation and presentation of documentary sound building on the activities of the Sound Diaries website. The emphasis is on unprocessed everyday sounds alongside projects or practices that explore their use. The conference features contributions exploring: lost everyday soundscapes; hunting for sound; the sound of the unspectacular; sound and memory; sound as text; mobile soundscapes; and the documentation of experience through sound.

The keynote speaker is Peter Cusack and other contributors include Felicity Ford, Adam Fowler, Jennie Savage, and Peter Stollery.
