Art and Sound Symposium, Leicester


Last weekend (4 July) I presented a paper at the Art and Sound Symposium at the Phoenix Cinema in Leicester. The symposium brought together composers and researchers covering a broad range of current topics such as sound mapping, sound archaeology, digital typography, and the role of ‘place’ in sound art and composition. My presentation was entitled ‘Forgotten Sites of Listening: A Narratological Approach to Tech-nostalgia in Sound Art’. I looked at the ways in which tech-nostalgia might support narrativity by deconstructing three case studies. The notion of tech-nostalgia must have struck a chord so to speak, as discussion of this seemed to dominate during the closing panel discussion!
