Sounding Out provides a forum for discussion and interaction between sound artists of all descriptions, reports David Davies. The underlying theme of this year’s event – which takes place at Bournemouth University (BU) from 8-10 September – is Soundworlds: Sonic Arts, Film and Radio.
Jody Thorne, sales and marketing manager for Prism Sound/SADiE, tells PSN-e: “We decided to sponsor the Sounding Out conference because it enables us to reach out to a new sector of educators and professionals who we wouldn’t normally reach. This event gives us a great platform to highlight our the SADiE 6 software and introduce our technology to a new audience. The fact that we already have an established relationship with Bournemouth University made this a sensible proposition for everyone involved. Bournemouth University bought SADiE technology some years ago and has been using our products to train degree students. Its recent investment in SADiE 6 means that students at the university are now benefiting from learning on the latest technology.”
Conference organisers Professor Seán Street and Dr Alain Renaud said: “We are delighted that Prism Sound is on board as one of our key sponsors. BU already has an excellent relationship with Prism Sound as supplier of our SADiE editing software for our undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, and we are delighted that they are joining us to celebrate the world of sound.”
Keynote speakers at the Sounding Out 5 event will include composer, cellist and music researcher Chris Chafe (pictured), composer and artist Jérôme Joy, academic and composer Jonathan Harvey, independent radio documentary maker Kaye Mortley, composer/digital artist Pedro Rebelo, National Film and Television School’s Larry Sider, and writer/director Dirk Maggs.
