This year's symposium – Conversations in the Field: Sound, Ecology, and Reciprocity – features presentations and performances by sound artists, musicians, and researchers who use sound to actively participate in a "conversation" with the natural world.

The keynote speaker is avant-garde composer David Dunn, a pioneer of "environmental music" and director of the Art and Science Laboratory in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Presenters include Open Sound 2014 exhibiting artists Paul Walde, Matt Smith, and Stephanie Loveless. These artists will be joined by researcher, sound artist, and communication specialist Jennifer Schine who will be discussing the Broughton Archipelago Sound Retreat Project.

There will also be a performance by the Experimental Music Unit comprised of Tina Pearson, George Tzanetakis, and Paul Walde.

Jordan Strom and Gabriel Mindel Saloman are the co-conveners.

About Sound Thinking

Founded in 2008, Surrey Art Gallery’s Sound Thinking symposium is an annual 1-day event that brings together practitioners and professionals in the field of sound art. The symposium features leading sound artists, scholars and researchers in the field sound studies, along with visual artists who use sound as key components of their practice, and musicians who experiment with the limits of music and sound. Past symposia have addressed subjects as diverse as radiophonic space, sound art installation, new approaches to ethnographic sound, and acoustic ecology.
