The British national organisation for new music, Sound and Music, welcomes you to another Composers’ Workshop, co-hosted with walk · listen · create.

In this workshop, we will look at an introduction to soundwalking and geo-located / locative sound work, and explore various tools and methods which can be used by composers to create work in this field.

Speakers

If you are interested in sound walking, geo-located work, or any of the many sound walking apps then join us to meet some of the people behind walk · listen · create, Echoes.xyz, and Carina Pesch who created The Ears May Travel, a sonic work commenting on travelling and borders in the time of COVID.

This will be a relaxed workshop. You are welcome to keep your video turned off, and come and leave at leisure. There will be live captions provided through an external app which are accessible via a browser.

If you have any access needs not covered here, please get in touch with [email protected] and let us know.
