Composer Manuella Blackburn headlined a concert of works on the Loudspeaker Orchestra.
The concert featured works from Manuella and Sound Design Students from Greenwich.
A two-day colloquium to exploring noise in music and art.
Noise as a concept that embraces the expressive, the idea of noise as a resistance and, through mutating repetition, a catalyst for creative production.
From this perspective noise moves out of the solely auditory register into a multisensory realm of non- representational logic.
The event welcomed international musicians and artists including Nicholas Collins from the University of Chicago, David Toop from London College of Communication, Atau Tanaka from Goldsmiths, Rie Nakajima and Dirty Electronics.
