Reading Around Sound (AK); Reflections on Echo Notes Towards a Dialogue on Sound by Women Artists – 20/04/2016


Join us at the Audio Foundation for Reading Around Sound – a monthly reading group facilitated in conjunction with Christchurch’s Auricle Sonic Arts gallery. Each month we’ll meet up and discuss specific texts that present ideas, thoughts, and theories relating to sound activity. All are welcome to attend!

This month’s Reading Around Sound text is Jean Fisher’s essay ‘Reflections on Echo Notes Towards a Dialogue on Sound by Women Artists.’ The article engages with notions of the voice and echo relative to issues of gender & subjectivity and is available here –

For online discussion around these texts, or if you’d like to suggest a text for upcoming consideration please join the Reading Around Sound Facebook group:

Reading Around Sound is a monthly reading group that endeavours to facilitate theoretical and critical engagement with contemporary sonic practices and related issues through close reading, and ongoing discussion and debate.
