The second annual Irish Sound, Science and Technology Convocation (ISSTC) will be held August 1-2, 2012 at the Cork School of Music and St. John’s College in Cork. Registration is now available at isstc2012.eventbrite.ie.
Noise has become ubiquitous in most of our lives. As listening is an imaginative activity, so noise is a cultural construct, and has always been a presence in our music, communication and environment. From Russolo to the post-digital arts, noise has been increasingly accepted into the realm of artistic practice as valid and evocative material. This Convocation will draw upon both science and art, theory and practice, in exploring these spaces and focuses on how contemporary science and technology affects the concept of noise.
Speakers & performers include Paul Hegarty, Bernard Clarke, John Lillis, Karen Power, Softday and many more. For ISSTC’s full schedule, visit http://issta.ie/wordpress/?page_id=217
