Details

Watch this event again for one week.

Paul Whitty, Professor of Composition in the School of Arts, sound obsessive and member of the Sonic Art Research Unit at Oxford Brookes University, will explore the latent cacophony of our material culture.

Sound is latent in the objects that surround us; the sounds of manufacture, memorably synchronised with our experience of the finished object by Robert Morris in his Box with the sound of its own making (1961); the sounds of use; of installation; and the soundscapes that the objects have inhabited.
