Abstract / Summary

The Dark Sound symposium brought together musicians, academics, researchers, writers, students, artists and members of the wider local communicty in an event dedicated to dark pop and its recurring themes of lost love, melancholia, death and desire.

Over the course of two days and three nights, a series of papers, live performances, workshops and fixed media works explored the destructive character of dark ‘popular’ music as it embodies darkness and haunts the threshold of shifting cultural understandings of ‘high’ and ‘low’ art.

Dark Sound symposium structured a dialogue based on questions and themes that were orientated around the seemingly paradoxical appeal of dark themes as embodied in ‘popular’ music. The symposium theme developed from a teaching module on the BA (Hons) Popular Music degree.
