An exhibition of new work by contemporary sound artists forming part of The Engine Room, a festival celebrating the life and work of Cornelius Cardew.

Cornelius Cardew (1936-1981) was a tutor at Morley College in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and left a lasting impact on the College as well as the wider British contemporary music scene. He was widely known in Britain and throughout the world not only for his avant-garde compositions but also as a political composer and for his position in contemporary music. As a musician and concert organiser he was responsible for many first performances including Boulez's "Structures" with Richard Rodney Bennett at RAM; as well as the music of Cage, Stockhausen, La Monte Young, Terry Riley, Wolff, Rzewski, etc.
