STRANGE RESONANCES, CLOSE LISTENINGS: ETHNOGRAPHY AND SOUND, 3 pts, GR6078
THE ETHNOGRAPHY OF SOUND
How does one live with sound and move within worlds of sound? How does one think with sound, and through sound? In pursuit of such questions the course explores: soundscapes and sound arts; echoes of audible pasts and resonances of auditory cultures; sound and the uncanny; repeated listenings in the age of electronic reproduction, ethereal transmissions, and audio-vision; sounds at the edges of listening with experimental music and sonic installations. Sound, chambers, noise, feedback, voice, resonance, silence: from the sirens of the Odyssey, to compositional figures ala John Cage, to contemporary everyday acoustical adventures, if one were to really listen, closely, how might one write about sound? How might one rethink the ties between sound and image?Who/what might the listening subject be?
