Sound Thought - Annual Festival

Sound Thought 2012

Fri 2nd - Sat 3rd March, The Arches, Glasgow

The annual festival of mould-breaking music, sound and performance research returns.

Brought to you by Glasgow University postgraduate music students and the Arches, Sound Thought is two days of interdisciplinary compositions, performances, installations, presentations and provocations - across disciplines, between genres and way beyond expectations... Sound Thought presents new composition, performance and research work from Glasgow University's diverse and vibrant music department, within a programme of cutting edge sound and performance from the UK's most exciting new artists.

This year, performances will focus on the idea of music as gift: what’s offered, and what’s returned? What’s at stake in the exchange? Do gifts require justification, or is it the thought that counts?

Expect blindfold journeys through dark corridors, noise, argument, pop song endurance and outright murder, lost correspondence to Chris De Burgh, ultra-minimal improv, the most exciting chamber ensemble in the country, stupidity, seriousness, and music for understanding, transgression and change…
