Why not our voices? New listenings and new worlds in the sonic imaginary

Lane, Cathy (2016) Why not our voices? New listenings and new worlds in the sonic imaginary. In: Sound Art Matters, 1-4 June 2016, Aarhus, Denmark.

Type of Research: Conference, Symposium or Workshop Item
Creators: Lane, Cathy

We live in sound, it is all around us. We are implicated in the social relationships and ideologies that we hear reflected back to us. Sound art offers the chance to critique the world that we hear and to produce new and different possibilities. Are sound artists taking up the challenge of offering new ways of knowing or changing the world and does this need new ways of listening and understanding? Can sound art or listening act as tools for radical change by ‘de-conditioning’ our listening and help us cross linguistic, cultural, geographic, ethnic, gendered, specied and sexual prejudicial borders? This presentation will consider how a new listenings might lead to a richer more inclusive sound art that can embrace and celebrate difference.
