Between Sound and Concept: Listening with the CCRU

08/12/2021 @ 11:00 - 17:00 GMT

The Cybernetic Culture Research Unit (CCRU) has seemed to grow in fame (or infamy) with each passing year since its demise in 2003. For contemporary speculative realists, xenofeminists, practice-based researchers and ‘para-academic’ theorists, the group offer the kernel of a genuinely new path for 21st century philosophy and arts research, one that blurs the line between subcultural production and high theory. Yet it is arguably within the areas of sound and music that the CCRU have the most enduring influence.

This symposium assesses the potentials and limits of the CCRU’s sonic theory, from jungle and the hardcore continuum through to contemporary sound art.

Convened by Dr Christopher Haworth, Senior Lecturer in Music at The University of Birmingham.
