Sound Thought is an annual festival of music and sound research, composition, and performance run by postgraduate students from the University of Glasgow. Sound Thought presents a unique opportunity for postgraduate researchers by providing them with a platform to present their research in a collaborative, interdisciplinary environment alongside the work of contemporary practitioners. Sound Thought 2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the festival, having been initially established in 2007.

This year’s theme, “Labora[R]tio: Collaborate, Articulate, Integrate“, will be explored by exhibiting the work of postgraduate researchers, academics, and contemporary practitioners, contextualized by themes pertinent to the creative process exploring the intersections of music, sound, and other artistic genres.
