Sonic Lab Revealed!

Recomposing the City wishes to thank the Architecture Society at Queen's, who hosted a wonderful seminar on 17 February featuring Chris Corrigan, technical manager at the Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC), and Stephen Douglas of Hall Black Douglas, the architects of SARC. We learned about the special challenges of designing a building for research in sound, and the many uses of the Sonic Lab as a performance and research space.  Attended by students in Architecture as well as the general public, the seminar and ensuing discussion made clear that collaborations between sound artists and architects can result in innovative design strategies, new modes of building, and new ways of using space in the context of performance and recording. Thank you to Stephen, Chris and ArcSoc for a great evening.
