About Us

The Engine Room is a Morley College London initiative, continuing Morley’s legacy as a leading centre for electronic and experimental music and sound art.

The Engine Room is a platform for the exploration, education and promotion of experimental sound and music. It aims to engage with students, emerging and established artists to encourage and promote new work.

The Engine Room holds annual events, showcases and exhibitions. Previous events have included a festival, conference, competitions, exhibitions and performances. Courses are offered as part of Morley’s extensive portfolio of courses.

We are currently inviting entries for our next major event – The Engine Room 2019: International Sound Art Competition & Exhibition. The competition is open to emerging sound artists from around the world, and will be judged by an award-winning panel of experts. Selected works will be eligible for a number of prizes, will be programmed at an accompanying exhibition at IKLECTIK Art Lab in London, during October 2019.
