PICA AT HANCOCK
15 NE Hancock St., Portland OR

Subharmonic: A Sonic Arts Symposium spans two immersive days of interactive workshops, thought-provoking panels, and live performances for artists and audiences of all experience levels to explore, discuss, and engage with a broad range of contemporary and experimental sound art and its influences. Programs will touch on electronic and noise music, video and light installation, film and video, space and architecture, racial and gender equity in the field, and more.

Both local and global critical ideas and creative practices will be shared, with a keynote presentation by sound art curator and practitioner France Jobin (Montréal) and performances and conversations featuring numerous local artists. Collaboratively curated by a consortium of local arts organizations and collectives, the full scope of symposium activity reflects a commitment to amplifying underrepresented voices in sound art and highlighting the depth and diversity of sonic art landscape, practices, and communities in Portland and beyond.

Subharmonic: A Sonic Arts Symposium is generously supported by PICA, S1, Portland State University's School of Music and Theater–Sonic Arts and Music Technology Program and the School of Art and Design, SIX, and Friends of Noise
