Music and Other Living Creatures x EnCOUnTERs: Acoustic Commons ACSG + Tim Shaw + Listening Room + Soundcamp
£12 / £10 / Advance / £6 MEMBERS

The Acoustic Commons is a network of partners collaborating to share live sounds from points of acoustic and ecological interest across Europe and Japan. It aims to widen participation in work with environmental sound, making connections between places, among species and across scales.

This evening will be an amalgam of material developed through the events' associated workshops (Assembling streamboxes and Making DIY Microphones), together with work from across the Acoustic Commons project, with presentations and performances by contributing artists.

Tickets to this evening are free to anyone booking on the following workshops:
11am-12:30pm: Acoustic Commons: How to Assemble A Streambox
1pm-3pm: Acoustic Commons: How to Make DIY Microphones

Music and Other Living Creatures is a series at Cafe OTO (curated by OTO Projects) dedicated to music about, with, or by other living creatures. Birds, tigers, chickens, insects and many other living creatures are explored through sound-walks, listening sessions, commissioned performances, live responses and discussions.

EnCOUnTERs is a series of inter-disciplinary events that reside at the intersection between inter- and intra-species encounter and the sonic imagination. Events direct attention to curiosity, the speculative as well as the scientific, and to notions of multiplicity of being, experience and philosophy surveying creative and research-based practices that reference aspects of ecology, ethology and other creature-ologies, bioart and bioacoustics, sound/scape studies, zoömusicology, ethnobotany, critical plant studies, and related fields.

EnCOUnTERs is curated by Helen Frosi (SoundFjord).
