eavesdropping is a series and a symposium dedicated to new music, curated by soprano Juliet Fraser and held in the little wooden chapel up in the eaves of Oxford House
in Bethnal Green, London.
The series runs with monthly events: over the course of four evenings, each a
double-bill, eight performers present their latest works or works-in-progress in an intimate and informal setting. eavesdropping's second season (2020) featured Sophie Fetokaki, Jennifer
Walshe, Raghad Haddad, Eva Zöllner, O YAMO O (Rie Nakajima and Keiko Yamamoto), Juliet Fraser,
Romina Lischka and Marlo De Lara (a.k.a. marlo eggplant).
Each season culminates in a weekend-long symposium.
The first season explored 'female creativity and the legacy and future of women in new music', and the topic for the most
recent symposium was 'creative activism: radical responses within new music'.
