Scoring Noise | Bow Gamelan Ensemble Symposium

14:00 on 24 November 2018
Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design

Book now

On the occasion of Bow Gamelan Ensemble’s exhibition, Great Noises That Fill The Air, Cooper Gallery presents the symposium Scoring Noise. Acting as a coda to the project the symposium will bring together artists, thinkers, theorists and musicians, tuning into current social and critical discourse to delineate the politics at stake in the discordances and harmonies that divide and unite ‘noise’ and ‘collective voice’.

Speakers include: Sam Ainsley & David Harding, Anne Bean & Richard Wilson (Bow Gamelan Ensemble), Graham Fagan, Rob La Frenais and David Toop.

Artists Ceylan Hay and Tina Krekels & Adam Campbell will punctuate the symposium with live sound interventions, commissioned as responses to the ethos of improvisation, camaraderie, provocation and antagonism within Bow Gamelan Ensemble’s practice.
