Sounds from a Small Town

Merseybeat. Madchester. Detroit techno. The Loughborough Sound? When thinking about music scenes we often think of major cities. But what role does music play in smaller towns and less celebrated places? Join us for a free event where artists, musicians and academics explore these issues through video, discussion and archival material. This is the first public event in (re)composition, Radar's new series of commissions exploring how place makes music and music makes place.

No booking required. For enquiries please email LUArts@lboro.ac.uk
