ALL ENVIRONMENTAL LISTENING SESSIONS ARE CANCELLED. BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS: THEY’RE ONLINE! PLEASE CHECK “TEACHING” IN THE MENU ABOVE.
With the Environmental Listening Sessions, we want to initiate regular deep listening sessions and aesthetic reflection on the environment. The monthly event aims to explore the acoustic, musical and aesthetic dimensions of environmental experiences and investigate the manifold artistic engagement with the natural and anthropogenically shaped environment, as well as the environmental problems associated with it.
Music and the arts in general have a major influence on the way we experience and understand nature – what significance it has for us and what place humans occupy in it. To this day, the arts determine our emotional and normative relationship to the environment. What significance do noises and sounds have in the environment, how do artistically produced soundscapes represent the environment? In this respect, it seems important to question current musical and sound artistic creation on whether it is capable of establishing new, alternative perspectives and relationships to the natural and technically shaped environment.
The two-hour, monthly and public programme will consist of a short introduction to the subject (record, installation, concert), acousmatic presentations and a subsequent discussion.
