Sound Thought 2011

A festival of music composition, research and performance

Thu 3 - Sat 5 Feb 2011 | Thurs-Fri: from 10am // Sat: from 12 noon | Festival Pass: £20/£15 // Day Pass: £8/£6

Sound Thought is the annual music composition, performance and research conference run by music postgraduates at the University of Glasgow. Each year, the festival presents a wide range of new composition work alongside paper presentations and workshops in an event which exists to explore contemporary music via practical and theoretical research, within and beyond the discipline of music.

This year’s festival, created in partnership with The Arches, will be a three day music-focused multi-arts conference/festival, combining workshops, paper presentations and round table discussion with a diverse programme of compositions, provocations and interdisciplinary performance.

The event will be a public platform for GU postgraduate work, and a chance to develop the themes and concerns of this work by engaging with broad research and an audience consisting of academic departments, visiting and local artists and a wider public. However, it is also a chance to explore research in sound from other Glasgow arts institutions, and a programme of interdisciplinary performance work by emergent artists working in related creative fields. The aim is to bring new music, research and performance work to a wider audience and to create a hub for the dialogues already existent in sound work – across disciplines, between genres and beyond expectations…
