Listen Again: The Changing World of Everyday Sound, Audio and Noise, and The Future of Sound Studies
This one-day symposium with an eclectic set of participants features panels, talks and a performance that will build on the legacy of the World Soundscape Project (WSP), whose local history has achieved global recognition and influence on consecutive waves of audio art. This symposium will present ideas that explore new trajectories of research and analysis that build on such influential concepts in sound art as “soundscape” and “sound ecology”.
I’ll be a guest on a panel discussing my research on “Noise & Resistance”. I’ll be joined by keynote speaker Jonathan Sterne, Adam Frank, Tim Hecker, Hisham Mayet, Ellen Moffat, and Jennifer Schine.
Andy Dixon, aka Secret Mommy, will also be performing.
There will also be two satellite events that are worthy of note:
On November 19, 2010 9PM, Tim Hecker with Loscil will be performing at the Western Front.
