Nina Garthwaite is founder of In The Dark, a media arts organisation best known for its gathered listening events. Run by a collective of audio producers and enthusiasts, In The Dark has gained a reputation around the world for curating, commissioning and celebrating creative audio. Nina also hosted Short Cuts, a long-running series of adventurous audio documentaries on BBC Radio 4. Nina and Eleanor jointly curated a month-long installation at The Barbican called Soundhouse: The Listening Body that explored the multi-sensory experiences of listening and asked what a cinema for sound might be like. Eleanor McDowall is a Director at Falling Tree Productions, which creates features and documentaries for the BBC and high- profile cultural institutions. McDowall is also the founder of Radio Atlas - an online platform and podcast for subtitled audio documentaries, and the series producer of Short Cuts on Radio 4.
CRiSAP and the Sound Arts Department at LCC co-run a Visiting Practitioners Series of weekly talks at the college, exploring the diverse field of sound arts practice. Each term member of Sound Arts staff curates the series of talks, inviting a number of sound practitioners to share their work.
