The Audible Unconscious is a series of presentations and performances by sound artists, musicians, and scholars that investigates the relationships between background sound, sounds used to direct human behaviour, and the phenomenon of distracted listening in the age of electronic media.

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.
