Dr David Chesworth and Associate Professor Philip Samartzis are happy to announce the launch of the Sound Art and Auditory Culture lab.

Sound is a curious omnipresence. It is an invisible force with many sources that physically impacts on our lived experience, but then, simultaneously, it is a carrier medium for all kinds of semiotic signals and aesthetic manifestations.

The Sound Art and Auditory Culture lab (SAAC) is a new interdisciplinary lab that will provide opportunities to discuss, develop and engage with the creative uses of sound and auditory research in art, society and the environment.

The Sound Art and Auditory Culture lab will investigate how sounding and listening can be re-thought by artists, researchers and students. The lab will draw on a range of makers and thinkers who are working with sound, both from the College and across the wider community. 

The Sound Art and Auditory Culture Lab launch will include introductory comments by Postdoctoral Fellow, Dr David Chesworth. David has also agreed to briefly introduce his current research and present excerpts of recent projects made in collaboration with Senior Industry Fellow and SAAC participant Sonia Leber
