Sounding site: listening, mingling, index and reciprocity in the field
Unlikely Journal for Creative Arts
CATHERINE CLOVER, JOHANNA HÄLLSTEN AND SHAUNA LAUREL JONES
Through our multidisciplinary practices and research, Cath, Johanna and Shauna have a continued relationship with the ideas present in Calls from Blethenal Green. For this collaborative essay, we revisited and extended the conversation about the project. In particular, we sought to explore the role listening plays in the process of sensing and making sense of place while in the field. Can conscientious listening help level an unequal playing field?

    Listening across Disciplines London College of Communication, University of the Arts London
23 and 24 June 2016
Invited participant - Listening Across Disciplines, a network project that brings together artists, musicians, scientists, technologists and social scientists as well as scholars and practitioners from the humanities, to work across disciplinary boundaries on the recently emerging focus on sound and listening.
The aim of this network is to initiate an exchange that draws together auditory research initiatives and methods from across the disciplines to advance their status and use, and to generate a space where culture and science can collide to generate new knowledge and create innovative modes of knowledge production that bring value within and between the disciplines, and ultimately to a general public.
The project has been awarded an AHRC grant and is run by Dr. Salomé Voegelin (PI), Reader in Sound Arts at the London College of Communication, UAL, and Co-I Dr. Anna Barney, Professor in Biomedical Acoustic Engineering at Southampton University.

Patti Smith: poet, writer, musician, mythmaker, punk, photographer and icon. Patti Smith’s symbolist-driven lyrics and potent spoken-word performances, along with her recent prose memoirs, Just Kids, Woolgathering and M Train, have made her a reckoning force in music, literature, fashion and the visual arts. Robert Mapplethorpe’s photographs of Smith have helped make her physical image as influential as her use of language. In the 1970s Smith’s impervious, androgynous stance, in juxtaposition with her fevered writing and intonation, bridged the image-conscious Warholian avant-garde, the subcultural ardour of the Beats, the dystopian visions of William Burroughs and the DIY culture of punk. Four decades on, Smith continues to hold a unique position of reference in the language and visual cultures we inhabit in the arts.
 
Much of Smith’s impact has resulted from the energy and the intensity of her spoken-word. It is the performative dimension of her language that this exhibition considers. Traversing the terrain of experimental music, avant-garde performance and concrete poetry, the artworks in this exhibition are responses to Patti Smith’s wielding of words.

It is certainly a risk But it should at least maintain all of its poetry, for poetry subverts reason and is never dulled by repetition. Besides, a few gaps in our knowledge will always allow for a joyous confusion of the mysterious, the unknown and the miraculous' Jean Painlevé, 1931

EMS11 sforzando! June 14-18 2011 New York City (Greenwich House Music School)
The EMS Network has been organised to fill an important gap in terms of electroacoustic music, namely focusing on the better understanding of the various manifestations of electroacoustic music. Areas related to the study of electroacoustic music range from the musicological to more interdisciplinary approaches, from studies concerning the impact of technology on musical creativity to the investigation of the ubiquitous nature of electroacoustic sounds today. The choice of the word, ‘network’ is of fundamental importance as one of our goals is to make relevant initiatives more widely available.

    Dislocate Trampoline [UK] in association with Ginza Art Laboratory, Tokyo, Japan. 28 July-18 August 2006.  ‘Dislocate' is an exhibition examining the tensions between the local and the global – the elements and identity of one local space which are simultaneously intersected by countless global links and influences.

    MusicAcoustic 2005:Mix China Electronic Music Centre, Beijing, China. The transforming soundscape of Beijing offers a heavy 'Mix' of old and modern voices; where the old hutong and modern skyscrapers Mix amidst a hurried development frenzy. The Conference invites research and concerts inquiring along a broad vector that traverses the aesthetics of Organized Sound, Electro-Acoustics (with Chinese and Western Instruments), Microsound, Coding Experimentation and Phonography. With modern China as a backdrop, a Mix of the traditional and new in computer/electronic/laptop music is an appropriate thematic, where an old/young city/country is experimenting with its own emerging unique voice on the global music scene. Chinese composers and academics come together once a year to plan future directions for the development of computer music in China and to learn/exchange with their international guests.
    Pathiharn Electron Media FestivalChiang Mai/Bangkok, Thailand and Singapore 2004. Thailand and its neighbors in the Southeast Asian region share some common traditional threads and face similar challenges regarding the impact of Informations Communication Technology (ICT) and new media on contemporary culture and society at large. This new media art festival will primarily, but not exclusively, focus on the Southeast Asian region. Thailand is well positioned on the political, economic, and technological front to act as a hub for inter-regional and international dialogue. Historically, the northern Chiang Mai region was the rich intersection of various regional cultures. Today, the city of Chiang Mai is the main focus of governmental, commercial and academic ICT development. This development seeks to establish Chiang Mai as not only the “Rose” but the “IT Capital of the North.” Chiang Mai's calm but evolving cultural climate makes it an ideal place for this dynamic new media art festival.
