SYMPOSIUM

SOARINGS: A SALON ON ELSE MARIE PADE


5 June 2017
A special opportunity to hear more about Else Marie Pade with talks, film screening and discussion at Cafe OTO. Soarings is a rough translation of the Danish word svæninger - a word coined by Pade to encompass both the phenomenon of different frequencies colliding to make an interference beat, and the more poetic image of soaring through the air. Contributions by Ain Bailey, Jacob Kirkegaard, Mads Kjelgaard, Sanne Krogh Groth, Jo Langton and Frances Morgan. In collaboration with Kammer Klang.
