Sonic Lectures Programme

As said previously, Centrum will be hosting a regular Sunday afternoon event called Sonic Lectures, commencing on 22nd October 2011. The idea is that we invite an audience to listen to a selection of music that broadens our understanding of music and its context. In August 2011, we put out a submission call out to find lecturers - individuals interested in telling the story of a particular area of music or in putting forward their own personal take on music. We received a high level of interest and have subsequently compiled a programme running from October 2011 through to July 2012 (with some details still to be arranged). The events, which have kindly been supported by the Wire magazine, will run (at least) monthly and details of the first lecture by DJ Zhao, will be up here shortly.
