The 2011 Sound Art Theories Symposium at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago takes place November 5 and 6. Sponsored by the SAIC Sound Department, the symposium brings together fourteen scholars from the US, Canada, and Europe engaging a wide range of topics, disciplines, and attitudes brought to bear on sound as art and art as sound. Featured presenters include:
• Christoph Cox on the transformation of hearing via the phonograph into the inanimate world.
• David Grubbs on how the online experience impacts the experience of sound archives.
• Seth Kim-Cohen on demolishing the wall between rock ‘n’ roll and sound art.
• Salomé Voegelin on sonic possible worlds rooted in experience and projected towards the imaginable.
• Allen S. Weiss on the danse macabre of sonic monsters rising from the ashes of recording.
The 2011 Sound Art Theories Symposium is organized by Adjunct Full Professor Lou Mallozzi for the Sound Department of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
