In making sense of sound, we unfailingly rely on our bodies and on bodily metaphors, often unconsciously. This day conference will explore the far-reaching principles and implications of embodying sound in a variety of art forms.

Speakers include Margaret Medlyn, Hamish Robb, Sally Jane Norman, David O’Donnell, Heidi Thomson, Thierry Jutel, Missy Molloy, and Miriam Ross.

Attendance is free but registration is required.
