Please join us for Re/Sounding Place; a micro-symposium for the sonically engaged. Re/Sounding Place seeks to facilitate conversation across a diverse range of artists, programmers, and scholars whose practices converge around sound—its acoustics, its materiality, its embodiment, its politics. The afternoon will be broken into two sessions: Sound + Site and Sound + Body with presentations from Megan Alvarado Saggese (UC Berkeley); Dena Beard (The Lab); James Fei (Mills College); Jim Haynes (Helen Scarsdale Agency); Nick Mathew (UC Berkeley); and Iván Ramos (UC Riverside). The sessions are meant serve as jumping off points for conversation rather than strict divisions of interests. We imagine (and hope!) there will be a tremendous amount of cross-pollination and crossover between them—after all, sites are constituted by bodies and bodies by sites.
