What is the School of Sound?

The School of Sound is a symposium created to encourage a cross-disciplinary approach to using sound in the arts and media. We explore what sound does, how audiences listen.

It is a place where you can raise your awareness of how audio production works, how it conveys information and emotion, how you can work with it.

Sound always seems to be occupying areas of ambiguity – the emotional, the subtext, the intuitive, the borders between reality and fantasy, the conscious and the subconscious. But how do you think about something so ephemeral? And how do you teach it?

For four days, you’ll be immersed in a world of imagination, invention and innovation. Listening to presentations from a diversity of incredible talents, you will be able to reflect on sound as something that is profoundly complex, entertaining and important.

Why attend the School of Sound?

The SOS provides a rare opportunity to hear and meet a group of very talented creatives working at the highest levels of the arts and media speaking in detail about how they think and work.

And the SOS is not about just one area of sound production. It covers film, theatre, dance, games, installation, music and radio, allowing you to expand your thinking and increase your ability to work in diverse areas of media and the arts.

At the SOS you will mix with hundreds of like-minded people – professional practitioners, educators, artists and students – with whom you can network, exchange ideas and create collaborations. You won’t learn how to use hardware or software. But it will move you to say, “I never thought of working that way.”
