Pay What You Can

The work of our artists is valuable and our events cost money to produce, but we also want them to be as accessible as possible. Therefore, we offer you the opportunity to pay what you can for this event.

New Wing

Jennifer Walshe’s Sound Salon series 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 the last event in the Sound Salon series, Jennifer invites musician, artist, and writer Seth Kim-Cohen who in his research interrogates sound and music as they intersect with politics, economics, history, and other cultural practices.

His books include Against Ambience (2013), In The Blink of an Ear: Toward A Non-Cochlear Sonic Art (2009), and One Reason To Live: Conversations About Music (2006). Kim-Cohen has presented artistic work on all but two continents and has released numerous albums of increasingly experimental, rock-based music. John Peel once bought him a beer. He is Associate Professor of Art History, Theory, and Criticism at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
