Building Sound is an on-going research experiment in ways to describe and articulate experiences of sound making and reception within theatre, theory and practice.
As both doctoral studies are concerned with an interrogation of sound within theatrical space, the aim of building sound is to provide thinkers and practitioners an opportunity to offer their own ideas from their respective practices about sound within an actual and a virtual space.
These sites in which voices will interweave with their own particular social and cultural definitions of aurality will it is hoped create an open forum in which ideas can complement, collide and construct.
As well as hosting information about the project and storing archival sound from the symposium, the form of this website itself is the result of an attempt to question how to build a website beyond text.
Both the symposium and website are investigations into interdisciplinary dialogues about working with sound.
The Building Sound symposium took place at the Olivier Stalls Foyer, National Theatre, Southbank, London, SE1 on Friday 5th February; 1pm-4pm.
Ella Finer and Fabrizio Manco each chose a selection of speakers to come together and describe what sound means to them; to provide an interdisciplinary hearing and sharing of ideas and definitions, leading to an open discussion.
The ten invited speakers and their talks can be listened to below.
The workshops as part of Building Sound took place in the first week of March 2010. To hear about future workshops please join the Building Sound mailing list by sending an email to email@example.com.

Building Sound has been funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, as a student-led initiative in their Beyond Text Programme.
The concept for the website is by Ella Finer and Fraser Muggeridge, designed by Fraser Muggeridge and Wolfram Wiedner and coded by Wolfram Wiedner.
We would like to thank all the speakers for giving their time and experience so generously. Thanks also to Fraser Muggeridge Studio and Wolfram Wiedner for their creative design input. Thank you to Lyndie Brimstone, Adrian Heathfield, Joe Kelleher and PA Skantze at Roehampton University for their invaluable support and advice. And to Evelyn Welch, Ruth Hogarth and Susanne Hart of the Beyond Text Programme for their assistance in the management of this research experiment. Finally, Ella thanks Jem Finer, Oona Grimes, Tony Grisoni, J. Maizlish, Hayley Newman, Flora Pitrolo and Sam Willan for their help and encouragement and Fabrizio thanks David McAlpine and Patrick Curry for theirs.
