REFRAME is delighted to alert its readers to the SOUNDday networking event
on THURSDAY 20th June 2013 (2.30-6pm) at the Basement Brighton www.thebasement.uk.com
The aim of SOUNDday is to bring together people who work in/with sound from a wide range of backgrounds including-
- radio producers and programmers
- community activists
- academics and the wider educational sector
- archivists and sound historians
- oral historians
- digital/sound artists
-in order to exchange ideas about radio, sound studies, the changing nature of the listening public and how this impacts upon our professional practice.
Confirmed speakers include:
- Lance Dann (award winning radio producer and sound artist – University of Brighton)
- David Hendy (creator of Noise: A Human History BBC R4 series and book – University of Sussex)
- Kate Lacey (specialist in women’s radio studies and author of Listening Publics: The Politics and Experience of Listening in the Media Age – University of Sussex)
The day will be a mixture of presentation and groups discussions focusing on the following key questions.
- HOW do people listen to radio and listen generally and has this changed?
- WHY do people continue to listen to radio in a digital age in which we are overwhelmed by listening choices?
- DO people listen differently in a multi platform digital era, and if so what consequences does this have for us as producers and sound specialists?
There will also be a live performance from composer and sound historian Sarah Angliss (http://www.sarahangliss.com/) using sounds sourced on the day as well as opportunities for networking and informal discussion.
If you would like to attend please RSVP to Sarah@plentyproductions.co.uk no later than 13th June 2013.
