A Noise Evening
Listening event of shared sound
Thursday 29 November, 5.30–8pm
Cooper Gallery

Spinning off from Bow Gamelan Ensemble’s exhibition Great Noises that Fill the Air, Cooper Gallery will be opening its ears for a listening session of avant-garde, experimental and obscure noise. A Noise Evening will be an informal night of listening together to a playlist built from an open call for sounds shared in resonance with the milieu of Bow Gamelan Ensemble.


See the playlist of shared sounds here: A Noise Evening playlist handout
