Sound Thought 2012

A festival of mould-breaking music, sound and performance

Fri 2 - Sat 3 Mar 2012 | From 12 noon each day | Festival pass: £15/£10 // Day pass: £9/£6 // Concert only ticket: £6/£4

The annual festival of mould-breaking music, sound and performance returns.

Brought to you by Glasgow University postgraduate students and the Arches, Sound Thought is two days of interdisciplinary compositions, performances, installations, presentations and provocations, travelling across disciplines, between genres and way beyond expectations.

With the mission of establishing a hub for the dialogues already existent in sound work and open them up to a wider audience, this year’s festival includes diverse and groundbreaking work from celebrated composers, visual artists, contemporary theatre practitioners and filmmakers alongside a massive programme of intriguing multimedia presentations, discussions and workshops.

This year, performances will focus on the idea of music as gift: what’s offered, and what’s returned? What’s at stake in the exchange? Do gifts require justification, or is it the thought that counts?

Expect blindfold journeys through dark corridors, noise, argument, pop song endurance and outright murder, lost correspondence to Chris De Burgh, ultra-minimal improv, the most exciting chamber ensemble in the country, stupidity, seriousness, and music for understanding, transgression and change…

Featured artists include: Edit Point, Neil Davidson and Liene Rozite, F.K.Alexander, Jenny Soep, Jer Reid and Monica De Ioanni, Emily Shepherd, Julien Lonchamp, Viridian Quartet, Brink Improv, Wounded Knee, Charles Ross, Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo Buffalo, Paul Henry, Chris Hutchings, Clare Healy, Edd Crawley, Julia Scott, Okishima Island Tourist Association, Annabel Carberry, Tamara Friebel
