During Prague Quadrennial 2011, Steve Brown (former PQ Sound Curator/Head of Sound at Royal Exchange Theatre, UK) devised The Sound Kitchen, an event that offered an opportunity for sound designers and sonic artists to present sound works and presentations. Sadly, Steve is no longer with us, but we are carrying out the 2015 event in his memory. 

Dr Karen Lauke is a professional composer, sound artist and designer. Her research focus is primarily in experimental music and sound for theatre, installation, live performance and exhibition.
