Supersonix is an interdisciplinary exploration of sound through critical theory, experiment, and performance.

A partnership between the Exhibition Road Cultural Group and the Society for Literature, Science and the Arts Europe (SLSA EU), the three-day conference is aimed at anyone from the arts, curatorial studies, the sciences, humanities, and social sciences who is interested in an interdisciplinary approach to the study of sound and sonification.

The conference is underpinned by a range of artists’ performances and panels on collaborations between the arts, sciences, technology, and design. With an international line-up of keynote speakers and delegates from Australia, Europe, and North America already confirmed, Supersonix is a unique opportunity to join a global sonic conversation.

Conference Programme : Key strands include Sound, Noise & History; Listening; Sound & Voice; Sound & Body; Sound & Space.

Films will be shown throughout the conference at a specially created pop-up cinema at auction house Christie’s South Kensington.
