Twice a year, the University of Sheffield's Department of Music set up a bespoke 360 degree dome of speakers in Firth Hall for Sound Junction. With the lights off, this soundsystem is the perfect setup for a truly mesmerising and immersive weekend of electronically composed and crafted sound.
Expect ambient music, sound art, sonic experiments, field recordings, and everything else at the cutting edge of electro-acoustic composition. Previous guests include Beatriz Ferreyra, Jonty Harrison, Hans Tutschku, Bredbeddle, Jason Sharp, Brona Martin and more.
The special guest for December's Friday concert is Portuguese composer Mariana Vieira. Her work includes acousmatic, mixed and instrumental music in solo, chamber, ensemble and orchestral settings, as well as pedagogical compositions. Expect delicate, fluttering and mechanical sounds.
Mariana will be joined by guests.
