SoundFjord was founded in a room nestled within a converted rag factory in late 2009. Operating from Tottenham, North London, it gained an international reputation for its eclectic programme of exhibitions, live events, performances, group crits, workshops, socials and collaborations.
In the summer of 2013 SoundFjord shifted focus to nomadic activity, focussing on commissioning new works whilst also collaborating on events and educational activities with like-minded organisations such as Field Studies, Goldsmiths University of London, the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London College of Communication, London Metropolitan University, Museum of London Docklands, Octopus Collective, Parasol unit and the Victoria and Albert Museum among others.
As an itinerant space dedicated to the curation, production and promotion of exceptional sound art and related practices to a broad audience, SoundFjord fosters research and critical listening practices, and encourages a deeper understanding - and wider knowledge - of the sonic arts through new experiences, cultural knowledge and skills exchange, education and play.
You will find its activities online, on air and in situ - unburdened by a single space or a defined architecture: SoundFjord founded the micro-imprint Visible Near Midnight, and is currently curating and producing Postcards from the Volcano (with Stephan Barrett), a monthly series of experimental sound art radio in association with Sonica.fm, and is co-curating this year's Full of Noises Festival. SoundFjord is a research fellow at Goldsmiths University of London (2014-17) and curator-in-residency at Octopus Collective, Cumbria (2014-15).
SoundFjord invites collaborative and curatorial propositions as well as consultation work and is available to curate and provide workshops independently.
