Sound Salon aims to fuel critical discussion, new vocabulary and analysis in sound, music and technology, supporting communities and practitioners in these fields to understand how the internet is shaping the field.

For this edition of the Sound Salon series, Jennifer Walshe will be in-conversation with Studios resident Erica Scourti discussing the impact of new technologies on ideas of the self and collective experience through everyday media. Erica is an artist and writer who explores these topics through her practice. Her current show ‘Spill Sections’ is on at Studio RCA until 18 April 2018.
