Central Saint Martins MA Culture, Criticism and Curation students present …At the slow party, copies sync towards zero, a new sound work by artist Andrew Sunderland commissioned for DRAF Studio. Sunderland takes as a starting point a recording of his voice made within the ground floor DRAF Gallery and deploys software plugins commonly used in the production of club music, such as time-stretching and auto-tune, to create an audio work with a duration of three days. The work points to the industrial history of DRAF’s building, a former 19th century furniture factory which has gone through usages including printing, dry cleaning, and tattoo parlour, and the re-purposing of similar post-industrial spaces in 1990s rave culture.


Curating Sound. An conversation with David Toop, Ed Kelly, Antonia Blocker and Hamish Dunbar
Thurs 26 Nov, 4–6pm

Free, email: volumedissolvesintoatmosphere@gmail.com to reserve a place.

On the occasion of the project Volume Dissolves Into Atmosphere, Central Saint Martins MA Culture, Criticism and Curation students host a discussion into the relationship between sound and space and their coexistence in the gallery environment. What is the status of sound in the gallery and how can it be experienced as art? What are the challenges in exhibiting and curating sound work? What is the changing relationship between sound and its audiences?

With David Toop (composer/musician, curator and UAL Chair of Audio Culture and Improvisation), Ed Kelly (composer/musician and associate lecturer in Visual Art: Fine Art Digital at Camberwell College of Art), Antonia Blocker (Curator: Public Programmes, Whitechapel Galler) and Hamish Dunbar (Founder and Director, Cafe Oto).
