Institute of Imaginary Sound & RMC are proud to present an online talk + Q&A

At the arrangement, the two music historians Deirdre Loughridge and Thomas Patteson invite you to join them on a tour of their Museum of Imaginary Musical Instruments that explore the wonderful history of made-up musical contraptions, including a piano comprised of yelping cats and Francis Bacon’s 17th-century vision of experimental sound manipulation. Associate Professor and Chair of Insitute of Imaginary Sound Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard will moderate this talk.

The Institute of imaginary sound is a virtual sub-department of the RMC in Copenhagen and the centre seeks to present artists & researchers working within the domains of imaginary sound, potentiality and utopia as such. Thomas Patteson is a Philadelphia-based musicologist whose work explores modern music, technology, and the experimental arts. He teaches at the Curtis Institute of Music and is an associate curator for Bowerbird. Deirdre Loughridge is a musicologist whose work focuses on the history of music and technology. She teaches at the University of California, Berkeley, and writes about music and technology at her blog, Spooky & the Metronome.
