Short Abstract:

This listening session features sound works that express the way in which listening generates experiences and indicate how the future may sound like. The programme will address how people experience continuities and frictions “in common” and how sounds play a role in imagining future socialites.

Long Abstract:

This programme will present sound works that, through their content or form, engage with notions of the “common” and the “uncommon” and reflect on what the future might sound like. The sound programme will consider how individuals and groups experience continuities, frictions, dissonances, and harmony in the process of developing narratives of hope and transformation. The listening session will explore these issues through the presentation of original sound works and discussion with their authors.

The session will focus on the relational character of sound, rather than understand sound as an object of nature, and discuss the different levels of experience that are elicited in practices of listening, designing, and presentation of sonic works. To “listen”, in this context, suggests an active process that generates transformative relationships in-sound. The programme will focus on sound works that have been generated through forms of active socializing and strive to reveal different textures and emotions about the world we live in and the world we ought to be part of.

We are looking for participants to share their original sound work during the panel. If interested in submitting a sound work (compositions, arrangements, storytelling, voice, etc.), please:

*use the proposal system to provide a short and longer description of your sound project/work;

*confirm in your description that you are the recorder/author of the recordings and/or own full rights of the work;

*provide a technical description: e.g. how many channels are needed for presentation, any visual accompaniments, etc. and other technical information about the clip.

*Finally, send your sound clip (in wav/mp3 format) - which should be no longer than 10-12 min - to pablo.herreraveitia(at)
