Sounding Out Practice

Tickets for the full day have now sold out, but you can book your tickets for the Panel Discussion here

Sounding Out Practice
is a public programme of discussions and workshops at Camberwell College of Arts and live performances at the South London Gallery.

This symposium invites participants to consider the intersection of experimental music and sound art, and the contrasting and complementary ways in which musicians and artists use sound works.


Contributors include: Emily Bick (writer); Mira Calix (artist/composer); Shiva Feshareki (composer/turntablist); John Macedo (artist); Marijn Ottenhof (artist); Irene Revell (curator/writer); Haroon Mirza (artist); rkss, or Robin Buckley (producer/ DJ/artist); Tim Spooner (artist); David Toop (musician/author) and others.

The day opens with individual presentations and a panel discussion in which established practitioners discuss their experiences of experimental music in the arts, followed by an audience Q&A.

The discussion will be followed by a series of practical workshops led by artists, curators, composers and musicians. These DIY exercises for participants will be centred around various themes, looking at both the production and presentation of sonic forms, and aimed at emerging artists, musicians, curators, producers and writers creating a cross-section of discussions among the practitioners.

The day will conclude with live performances in the South London Gallery’s Clore Studio by experimental musicians and artists working with sound.


Sounding Out Practice is programmed by New Contemporaries to coincide with Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2019, on display at the South London Gallery 6 December 2019 – 23 February 2020.
