The School of Sound International Symposium

A unique series of masterclasses exploring the art of sound in film, the arts and media


Wednesday – Saturday
24 – 27 April 2019
Southbank Centre


Since 1998, the SOS has established itself as the major forum for the creative use of sound in media and the arts. These four-day masterclass series have introduced our audience to an eclectic group of speakers from cinema, theatre, radio, dance, sound art, music, architecture, games – from almost any area working with sound. They include professional practitioners, artists and educators who reveal the methods and creative thinking that lie behind the most effective uses of sound and music in screen, installation and audio production.

Below are programmes from past years to give you an idea of the speakers and the topics they covered.
