Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Space in Sound is postponed to a later date in autumn. We will update this post once we have more information.
Lighthouse presents THE SPACE IN SOUND: a day of talks and an evening performance exploring ways sounds can occupy space
An afternoon of talks exploring different ways of thinking about how we listen to sound, and cultural attitudes towards the act of listening. We will interrogate our understanding of sound in space- how it can be detected through our ears, but can also be felt, seen and experienced as an idea. Themes will include spatial sound, architecture, machines, experimentation and how it can play, interact and synergise individuals, communities and the environment. Speakers include Rie Nakajima, Paul Davies and Lucy Harrison, more to be announced.
The evening program will show a series of performances by Lee Gamble, Hugo Esquinca, Nina Pixel, Ji Youn Kang using the Pentacle 15:3 sound system. A powerful high fidelity mobile speaker system, developed by Fedde ten Berge and consisting of 15 self-designed loudspeakers and 3 self-designed subwoofers, all purpose built. This is a unique opportunity to sit within this 360º sonic scape and experience some of the most exciting and innovative electronic musicians working today.

The event offers an opportunity to discover ways in which sound appears in its physical, psychological, compositional, digital, electronic and analogue forms. Themes will interrogate spatial sound, architecture, objects, experimentation and how it can play, interact and synergise between individuals, communities and the environment.

Sound practitioners, artists, musicians, architects, students and anyone with an interest in the creative possibilities of sound be welcome!
