      Apologies for any cross postings or forwardings by third parties.

      For three days in November (12th, 13th, 14th) , Glasgow will play host to
      'drift' - an imaginative, accessible and vital programme of sound art &
      acoustic ecology focused installations, performance, soundwalks, audio
      boat trips, talks and workshops.

      The weekends participants include:
      Kaffe Matthews / David Toop & Max Eastley / John Levack Drever / Michael
      Prime /
      Dallas Simpson / Calum Stirling /Gregg Wagstaff / Stephen Hurrel /
      UK Soundscape Community / Millenium Urban Soundscape Project

      Full information on all of the events and a downloadable programme (in
      PDF format) are available at:

      www.mediascot.org/drift/

      We are all very aware of images and visual culture but we should also
      consider and be aware of the possibiliies of sound within different
      spaces and environments, and a browse through current arts festival
      guides and gallery brochures reveals an increasing use of sound within
      artists work. Picking up a university prospectus reveals the emergence of
      �phonic� and �sonic� arts courses, and �acoustic ecology� conferences and
      seminars are happening internationally. Sound is a living, relevant
      medium and In a world of overwhelming man-made noise an understanding of
      the natural soundscape and its appropriation into new sonic works is
      becoming increasingly important.

      Within the remit of drift and in collaboration with some innovative sound
      artists I have attempted to present a diary of (free and low cost) events
      that encourages your participation: come to the talks, take an audio boat
      trip, visit the installations and attend the live performances and if
      you�re lucky enough to pick up a free copy of the limited pressing CD
      featuring contributions from many of the artists involved in drift (to be
      given away at various events), go home and immerse yourself in a new
      world of sound.

      I hope to see and hear you there!
