** This is an internal event for CRiSAP researchers and Sound Arts MA students **
The CRiSAP Soirées are regular meetings for the CRiSAP research group (staff, students, alumni, and visitors) to share and discuss research issues and topics within sound arts practice.
This month we welcome guest researcher Jordan Lacey and CRiSAP Researcher Fari Bradley to share their work.
Jordan Lacey is a creative practitioner, transdisciplinary researcher, musician and curator who specialises in soundscape design and the creation of public sound art installations. He was recently awarded an Australian Research Council (DECRA) grant titled Translating Ambiance. This project combines biophilic design and ambiance theory to discover new techniques for the creation of sound art installations. He is based in the School of Design at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia and is an associate editor for the Journal of Sonic Studies, which is based in the Netherlands.
Jordan new book Urban Roar (Bloomsbury Publishing, Feb 2022) argues for the existence of 'autonomous affectivities' that roar beneath the din of the urban, seeking the attention of us humans so captured by the environments of our own making.
Fari Bradley is a sound artist, composer and arts-broadcaster who works with listening, language and location to question our sense of self and our place within society and the environment. Bradley’s practice spans performance, broadcast, installation and sculpture, involving experimental sound and music, and exercises in modes of listening and communication.
Fari’s PhD New Ears for New Noise – How Might Sound Art Interrogate Signal Density in Smart Cities as Pollution? investigates how SmE signal 'levels' (strength, proximity, number) will increasingly become an irritant, and how signal density, although inaudible, is comparable in nature to concepts of noise pollution as it developed since the industrial revolution.
