Saturday 2 March, 8.30pm
Sonify is a quadraphonic installation produced by Soosan Lolavar for the LSE Literary Festival 2013. It is built from many hours of sound clips recorded throughout the festival that are granularly synthesised and randomly layered. Audience members are invited to walk around inside the installation to experience the festival as a changing sonic landscape that has both musical and discursive meaning.
Soosan Lolavar is a composer, collaborator and sound artist who has worked in dance, multimedia, installation, concert music, film and animation. Her work has been performed at the Royal Festival Hall, the National Maritime Museum, the ICA, the Jacqueline Du Pré Music Building, the Bonnie Bird Theatre and Circus Space. In 2012 she won the John Halford Prize for Composition and was selected as part of the Adopt a Composer scheme funded by PRS for Music Foundation and run by Making Music, in partnership with Sound and Music and BBC Radio 3. She holds degrees from both Oxford and Cambridge University and is currently enrolled in the MMus Composition at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London where she is the recipient of the Gladys Bratton and TCM Trust Scholarships 2011-2012 and the TCL Scholarship 2012-2013.
This event will be accompanied by a drinks reception with cash bar and complimentary nibbles, to celebrate the closing night of the Festival.
