Tess Denman-Cleaver: Meetings of the Air

The Sonic Art Research Unit (SARU) presents Sound I’m Particular, a series of Pay What You Decide talks held at The Old Fire Station, Oxford.

These evening events will take place between April 2018 and April 2019, 7:30-9:00pm.

Sound I’m Particular is a Pay What You Decide talk series that aims to provide a forum to discuss and interrogate listening as both subject and object, exploring the various guises of contemporary listening practices with talks and demonstrations by artists and academics from all over the country; ranging from topics such as augury and Nan Shepherd, to Gertrude Stein and Virginia Woolf, to field recording and Twin Peaks.

All are welcome and no previous knowledge of the subjects is necessary.

Tess’ background in theatre informs her performance practice, which spans performance writing, installation, live event and public workshops.

In this performance/talk Tess will present and discuss elements of new work that she is developing as artist in residence at SARU. This new work looks at the writings of Gertrude Stein and early examples of participatory radio broadcasting, and uses live radio broadcasting to build listening and writing environments through which Tess makes the live events.
