On November 5 and 6, the sound department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago will host an academic conference called Sound Art Theories Symposium; the event is organized by Lou Mallozzi, an adjunct professor at the school and the founder of Experimental Sound Studio. Advance registration will set you back a hundred bucks and individual panels are $20 a pop ($25 if you register on-site), but the list of presenters is impressive enough that I’d consider that a worthwhile investment.
