Ecologies of Listening #2: Composing Listening

An art education offer of the ifa-Galerie Berlin as part of the upcoming exhibition "The Listening and the Winds - Narratives and Inscriptions of the Gran Chaco"

With Ecologies of Listening the ifa gallery Berlin explores listening as a practice of actively and consciously relating to our environment. Through experimentation, listening exercises and sound walks from the fields of radio art, composition and somatic practice, three listening sessions in different urban locations invite participants to challenge their aural senses and practice active listening. Curated by Annika Niemann and Rosanna Lovell.

The second listening session considers the work of composers whom explore listening and make it a focus of their work. Many aspects of the listening practices which we know today emerged out of the practices of composers during the twentieth century, such as Pauline Oliveros, who developed the practice of Deep Listening while also working as a composer and a musician. What influence do these practices of listening and composing have on the work of composers today? What role does listening, or the future listener, play when composing?

With Rosanna Lovell. Guest: Stellan Veloce
