The second instalment of what we hope will become a regular platform for student and staff research and practice will take place on the 12th of February 2022. Students and staff from the departments of music, computing and MCCS will perform, share research or creative work which engages with the theme of “assemblages and their affordances (sonic, embodied, technological, instrumental),” in collaboration with the Goldsmiths Music department.  


The Centre for Sound, Technology and Culture was created to explore the technological and cultural aspects of sound. It is concerned with research and in particular, research as practice, performance and discussion. The centre maps the diversity of thinking across the sonic landscape, from sound studies to musical performance, from sound art to the sociology of music, from historical soundscapes to digital musicology. CSTC draws on and consolidates a wide range of interests in sound across different departments, centres and units within the college. Research colloquiums such as this aim to facilitate opportunities for students and staff to share, discuss and engage across departments and disciplines.  


We hope you can join us on the 12th February.
