Curated alongside London-based artist and filmmaker Aura Satz, Tate foregrounds sonic practices over three days, expanding out of the Starr Cinema into the bowels of the Tanks. With the filmmaker and her collaborators, we're prompted to think about these sets of questions, and many others: Does an alarm have to sound alarming? How can we address alarm fatigue, both as lived reality and as a metaphor for our current state?

The programme is organised by Tate Film in collaboration with the Preemptive Listening team at the Royal College of Art (Aura Satz with Francesca Laura Cavallo and Irene Revell), part-funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), and Fondazione In Between Art Film.
