Sonophilia Conference: Day Two
Fri 7 October 2016, 09:30 – 16:00 BST
DAY TWO: ART, ACTIVISM & EDUCATION
Join us for the second day of the Sonophilia Conference - #SonCon16 - as we explore art, activism and education through a host of talks and workshops designed for those in higher education. While it's designed for those in education the event is open to everyone.
The day opens with a panel discussion of sound as art featuring Sonophilia Festival Director Amie Slavin, Lincoln based arts collective General Practice and London based sound artist & musician Graham Dunning. They'll discuss their work, motivation and why sound is an art form.
Graham Dunning and General Practice will then lead the days’ workshops; Graham will demonstrate his mechanical techno machines and [gP] will show you their alternative homebrew recording methods. They'll be joined by Lincoln based digital arts company IntAR-Media who will explore projection and sound mapping, as well as Sonophilia featured artists Rebecca Lee & Samuel Rodgers who will teach you how to improvise sound art in response to places and environments.
Legendary DJ Matt Black of Coldcut, and founder of Ninja Tune, records joins us as our keynotes speaker in an interview with Lincolnshire arts legend David Lambert to discuss his art, activism and independence. They'll also explore Ninja Tune's Ninja Jamm app.
The afternoon rounds off with the return of Lincoln based Art Isn't Sexy as they discuss art as an act of rebellion and social discourse. We close the conference with a look at the work of Lincolnshire music charity soundLINCS as we explore their work with children and young people in challenging circumstances.
