The Southern Branch of the IOA is delighted to join forces again with the AES South of England Group for a viewing of the film “In Pursuit of Silence” by director Patrick Shen.
In Pursuit of Silence is a meditative exploration of our relationship with silence, sound and the impact of noise on our lives. Beginning with an ode to John Cage’s ground-breaking composition 4'33", In Pursuit of Silence takes us on an immersive cinematic journey around the globe– from a traditional tea ceremony in Kyoto, to the streets of the loudest city on the planet, Mumbai during the wild festival season – and instantly inspires us to experience silence and celebrate the wonders of our world.
The event is free to members of the IoA and the AES, as well as to students and staff of Southampton Solent University. There will be a wine and mince pie reception before the film. Due to the licencing restrictions for the film the general public cannot be admitted to this event. Spaces are limited, so registration is essential, and you will need to print out and bring your ticket for the event.
