The fourth annual Irish Sound, Science and Technology Convocation takes place from 28–29 August

issta-logoThe conference, which takes place at the National University Ireland, Maynooth, is entitled ‘Audio Fabric: Socio-Sonic Textures in the Real World’ and examines the social impact of sound in the real world.

From the conference web site:

Technology cannot be divorced from the interconnections with cultural output, social practice and aesthetics. We seek to contextualise all sound-making and its sciences and technologies. What is the societal impact of our artistic and technical practice with sound? How does our research and practice impact the wider community? Finally, given that our practice is, for the most part, financed by public funding, what is it that we are giving back?

Featuring keynote speeches by Icelandic composer Guðmundur Steinn Gunnarsson and Dr Jacqueline Walker, University of Limerick, the convocation includes papers and workshops on a range of topics associated with the main theme.

The 2-day event also includes a number of performances, including those by Fergal Dowling, Massimo Davi, and Patrick McGlynn.

Further information is available from the Irish Sound, Science and Technology web site.
