Soundworks Banner Our current exhibition and online sound art project has had over 50k hits so far.

But it's far from over yet. Tickets are now on sale for our weekend of Sound: 14-15 September: SOUNDWORKS: BRRRRR BRRR BRRRR and MMMMMMMMMMMM:

Taking its name from Bruce Nauman’s use of raw audio materials, this weekend of sound brings together recordings from SOUNDWORKS in conjunction with presentations, round table discussions, music performances, and screenings exploring the potential of sound in art.

Part I: Luke Fowler The weekend launches with a presentation by ICA artist in residence Luke Fowler, who concludes his residency with a project developed from the ICA archive.

Part II: Acoustic Ambiguities A panel of artists, writers and musicians explore the relationship between sound production and sound dispersion.

Part III: Sound Shaping Contributors to the SOUNDWORKS project as well as others negotiate the question of how sound can structure our perception of space, time, and form.

Part IV: Factory Floor with Peter Gordon (LOLO) The first in a series of four live events by visionary electronic music trio and ICA artists in residence Factory Floor in collaboration with New York composer Peter Gordon, with visuals by Kit Fitzgerald. The performance will be followed by DJs: Planningtorock, Frances Morgan (Wire magazine), and Tim Burgess.
