LCC MA Sound Arts Postgrad Symposium
Saturday 4 December 2021, 11.00-13.30 GMT
Online, held on Zoom
Free, booking essential
This year’s London College of Communication MA Sound Arts Postgrad Symposium offers insights into our graduating class’ final show, Festive Labour. It features a talk from our guest artist Lisa Hall, as well as contributions from the student artists themselves and the course leader, Thomas Gardner. Chaired by Louise Gray, the symposium is an opportunity for fellow researchers from the sound arts community, students, guests and friends to engage directly with the artists’ research, through conversation and inquiry.
There will be the chance to view the research posters that each student has made on the interactive Padlet platform, these can also be viewed online here in advance.
Curated by Irene Revell, Festive Labour is at Dilston Gallery, Southwark Park, London (2-5 December 2021). For those unable to attend the exhibition, the symposium will feature documentation of the works on show.
A Zoom link will be supplied to all registered attendees two days before the Symposium.

Lisa Hall is a London based sound artist exploring urban environments using audio interventions, installations and participatory works. Interrupting behaviour and questioning design, these works aim to make space for something new and to trigger new connections with our sonic environments. Recent works have included: ‘No scent or colour’ air pollution sonifications on sonic bikes, a collaboration with Kaffe Matthew; curation of participatory online exhibition ‘Acts of Air’ and celebratory event ‘Sound, Art & Urban Spaces’ with CRiSAP; ‘Open Wave-Receiver’ radio development with international feminist collective Shortwave Radio; and ‘We are just …’ a site specific mobile sound work connecting strangers of all species in Finsbury Park, a collaboration with Hannah Kemp-Welch at Furtherfield Gallery.
