EXPO returns to present its first festival edition, which investigates issues in ecology and climate studies as reflected in contemporary art and sound. Expect a weekend packed full of performances, talks, installations, and workshops involving internationally and locally renowned musicians, artists, and thinkers from a diverse array of disciplines and backgrounds. A central part of the festival will be a special project, BYOP (Bring Your Own Plant), which will give people from all backgrounds the chance to make music with plants, micro-computers and sensors, realised as a collaborative community sound installation in collaboration with the Oxford e-Research Centre. The festival features the Explore Ensemble performing new commissions by Joel Baldwin, Jonathan Packham, Nicholas Moroz, Lisa Illean and others. Keep your eyes peeled for further details and the full festival line-up to be announced in late 2019.
