MTI²'s Prof. John Young is one of the invited keynote speakers at the Audio Testimonies Symposium, organised by CRiSAP (Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice) at the University of the Arts London, which will take place this week Thursday July 2nd and Friday July 3rd:
"An online Symposium organised in collaboration with Emerge, Bournemouth University, led by Dr Thomas Gardner and Dr Panos Amelidis
2 & 3 July 2020, 10:00 – 17:00 BST
This symposium considers the place of Audio Testimonies in artistic practice, and will explore the ways in which artists use sound to enable new forms of testimony, and create new artistic configurations, which engage public consciousness.
Key note speakers: Amy Wlodarski and John Young
Audio Testimonies aims to open a discussion on this topic and form the start of a network which will continue exploration of these themes. It will do so through a two days of presentations focusing on particular works and via a social activity of collectively making audio testimony."
This event is part of 'Un-Earthed: A festival of listening and environment':
"A critical celebration of our relationships with the environments that we share with other people and other species.
An ongoing series of events inviting both serious and more playful interrogations of current sound and listening practices and how they might help us reconsider our evolving relationships with other species, the built environment, truth and each other."
