The New Romantics is an exhibition exploring the ways in which contemporary artists using digital media engage the body, representations of nature, poetic irony, and expressions of individuality as originally expressed in 19th Century Romanticism. By drawing equivalences between then and now, this exhibition identifies a critical precedent for artists today that are responding to their ever changing technological environment. Just as the Romantics responded to the industrial revolution, this group of artists are similarly responding to the current information revolution.

In this week-long multi-session workshop, sound artists and composers will develop individual (or collaborative) spatial sound compositions. Participants will perform their works in a public performance for the ongoing event series CT-SWaM (Contemporary Temporary - Sound Works and Music) at Eyebeam.
For most artists who are working with sound, it is still very challenging to gain access to a proper space and a larger number of powerful and balanced loudspeakers in order to properly experiment and to develop ideas. The Spatial Sound Composition workshop will therefore provide the technical infrastructure and also an environment for discussion, contextual placements and an insight into the theory and history of this specific field.
