Seminar at City University of London

D'Arcy, J. (Invited speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk

Description

Focusing on the participative acts of Belfast City Choir and HIVE Choir, this presentation considers the voice as a means of amplifier and censor against a backdrop of contested cultures and spaces - raising public concerns found in text, interview and eavesdropped exchange. The talk addresses how the performances of HIVE and Belfast City Choir might bring attention to socio-sonic issues of Belfast’s public realm, and the potential add to wider conversations that are currently redeveloping and redefining the city.
