The Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC) at Queen’s University Belfast invites you 
to three specially curated events as part of the Sounds Alive Festival in 
Dublin this week-end, 6th September 2014: 

1) Curated Listening Room / Saturday, 10am - 4pm
A listening room curated by the Sonic Arts Research Centre will feature three 
works that have woven together sounds and stories. Pieces by John D’Arcy, 
Michael Dzjaparidze and Min Kim Hyeon

2) Participatory Sonic Arts Panel / Saturday, 2-3pm, Grand Lodge
With Professor Pedro Rebelo and Matilde Meireles, moderated by Dr Franziska 
Schroeder and Claire Cronin
SARC has convened a special panel on participatory sonic arts focusing on 
projects which involve communities in the development and production of sonic 
art practices. SARC researchers will discuss experiences and share stories from 
the project ‘Som da Maré - A Participatory Sonic Arts Project’ which took place 
in one of Rio de Janeiro’s largest favelas from January to June 2014. The 
project focused on the relationship between sound and everyday life and 
involved residents of the favela as well as university students.
The militarisation of Maré at the end of March 2014 was one of the elements 
taken into account in the process of documenting personal stories as well as in 
presenting themes that evolved in a participatory context. A group of over 
thirty participants which included Maré residents, their families and students 
from Rio’s Federal University (UFRJ) worked together on the project which 
culminated in three sound installation in the Museum of Maré, situated in the 
favela itself, alongside guided sound walks in Rio’s city centre.
The panel will present the methodologies used in "Som da Maré" and discuss its 
predecessor, Belfast’s “Sounds of the City” including Belfast’s Soundmap.

3) Book launch and Performance / Saturday, 5pm, Various Spaces
For the final SARC event we will showcase an improvisation event with musicians 
distributed across several rooms and floors of Dublin’s Freemason Hall. 
Paul Stapleton will perform his purpose-built BONSAI sound sculpture and Adnan 
Marquez and Franziska Schroeder will feature on saxophones. A collective of 
authors of the recent publication on improvisation in music, entitled 
“Soundweaving: Writings on improvisation” (Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2014) 
will contribute text excerpts and improvised snippets from the book as part of 
this unusual distributed sound event.
This performance weaves stories of texts and sounds, while asking the audience 
to move freely between spaces.
Launch of  “Soundweaving: Writings on improvisation” - eds. Franziska 
Schroeder, Mícheál Ó hAodha, Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2014: 

All events curated by Dr Franziska Schroeder, School of Creative Arts, Queen’s 
University Belfast
