Sound Junction Satellites:
The satellite series continues to innovate by presenting new work in new venues. Satellite events tend to be free. Recent satellite events have included 'Steal: Away: Home' at Kelham Island as part of 'From Brooklyn works to Brooklynism' on 17th July.
Sound Junction is one of the UK's longest-running and most significant concert series dedicated exclusively to acousmatic, electroacoustic music. Over the past 15 years, it has presented a wide range of home-grown, national and international composers to the public, including many of the world's leading electroacoustic figures, such as Francois Bayle, Francis Dhomont, Annette Vande Gorne, Beatriz Ferreyra, Daniel Teruggi, Denis Smalley, Trevor Wishart, Jonty Harrison, Hans Tutschku, and many many more. The Sound Junction series has one central aim: to make acousmatic, electroacoustic music accessible to a listening public, by presenting the most exciting and innovative music from around the globe, live in concert. Using a purpose-built sound diffusion system, and with technical support from the University of Sheffield Sound Studios, these events present acousmatic music in ideal listening conditions; a dark, concert space filled with loudspeakers, thus allowing for concentrated, dedicated listening. Concerts are often prefaced with public talks, in which aesthetic and technical ideas are shared with the audience. In recent years, this audience has grown considerably; the two main events in the series have been supplemented with smaller satellites that pop-up in venues throughout Sheffield.
