Celebrating Women in Sound
When: March 8 2018
Where: London, United Kingdom
We are delighted to announce that the selected artist for our International Women’s Day event, Celebrating Women in Sound, is the collective Sisters Akousmatica.
They will perform at the evening concert from 8pm in the Great Hall at Goldsmiths University.
Additionally their work will be presented in The Room of Sounds in Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil on the 10th of August 2018.
As Sisters Akousmatica, Dr Julia Drouhin and Phillipa Stafford create curatorial and written projects concerning collective radio practices and auditory-spatial exploration that support and cultivate the voices of women and non-binary people in public space. They have worked to produce large-scale public transmission projects, a retreat for women and non-binary artists, workshops and commissions with organisations such as Mona Foma, Liquid Architecture, Next Wave Festival, the University of Tasmania, 3CR, The Channel, Signal, Radiophrenia and Arts Tasmania. In 2017 their eponymous project Sisters Akousmatica was the recipient of the Community Radio Association of Australia’s Excellence in Music Programming award.
