WORKS FOR LOUDSPEAKERS

Works For Loudspeakers is a quarterly listening party showcasing emerging and established composers.

EMAIL SUBMISSIONS TO worksforloudspeakers@gmail.com

Every edition is different, and curated to give a platform for non-performative sound-based composition – music that would usually not have a public outlet.

The audience is given an opportunity to exercise close listening in a friendly environment and many tracks are made available for download after the events.
