Musicity x Culture Mile Live Talk IV

Fari up close

Join Musicity founder Nick Luscombe (BBC Radio 3's Late Junction) in conversation with Fari Bradley and Tom Richards. 

A conversation with artists who were commissioned to create new musical and spoken word pieces responding to unique Culture Mile locations. Meet the composers and find out more about the pieces they created, which use sound mapping data gathered by acoustic experts ARUP to explore the intrinsic connection between architecture, sound and creativity around the city.  

Fari B is a sound artist, composer and arts-broadcaster who works with listening, language and the environment to question our sense of self and our place within society and nature. Tom Richards is an artist, musician, DJ, researcher and instrument designer working between sonic art, sculpture and music. Drawing from his PhD study (Goldsmiths/Science Museum) on the musical innovations of Daphne Oram, he has built his own idiosyncratic modular electronic music system.

The talk takes place at The Life Rewired Hub (Barbican Centre level G) and is free to attend.
