About Reflections on Process in Sound: ‘It focuses on sound related activities but also branches out into adjacent territories with the aim to provide a forum where artists can engage in discussions about how they create the work they do, what their practices are influenced by and how their ideas manifest themselves within the final artwork. In short, it puts the spotlight onto process in sound arts practice, from the practitioner’s point of view.
