The listening session provides space to collectively listen to and hold discussions around relationships to music, sound, memory and oral histories.

At each session there is a turntable, mixer, laptop and aux cable, and participants are invited to share their own choice of music or sounds that means something to them, or is associated with a particular memory or story.

You can find a link to a Spotify playlist of previous contributions here.

This event will take place within Site Gallery’s summer exhibition Wishful Thinking. Participants will be able to take part in the session within our soft sculpture designed by Site Gallery’s youth collective The Society of Explorers.


This event will take place on the ground floor of our building and is wheelchair accessible. There are accessible toilets on the same floor. If you have any questions or if there is anything we can do to improve your visit please email

Gut Level

Primarily based around club events and workshops, Gut Level’s activity gives a platform to individuals who are underrepresented in the music industry, namely queer/LGBTQ+, women and non-binary people.

They believe in keeping things affordable, championing local talent and grassroots promoters.
