The Sussex University Creative and Critical Practice Research Group
(CCPRG) presents a two-day event exploring the relationship between creative
practice and research, inside and outside the academy. The event will
interrogate the manner in which experimental practice/critique/research
partnerships address impact as an ‘always already’ present aspect of
creative and social practice. The two days will include papers,
performances, films and workshops from across a broad range of disciplines,
including music, law, sociology, maths, performance art, and more.
SCHEDULE / THURSDAY 2ND JULY
Registration, coffee, etc.

A one-to-one interactive sound performance. It explores the interpersonal relationship between a performer and a member of the public; a sonic relationship established and mediated by interactive technology. This sonic experiment aims to playfully blur the borders between the roles of performer and audience; when single members of the audience find themselves in a situation that requires their own contribution for the development of the performance.
The social impact of post-tonal music.
A selection of video work curated by the Sussex University Critical and Creative Practise Research Group.
