Our capacity to truly listen and absorb everyday sound is often dampened—if not entirely ignored—by the pressures of the modern urban soundscape. In this unusual, intimate workshop, you’ll re-tune your ears to the primal sense of acute hearing. Sound artist Bruce Odland, who has spent his career highlighting the complex and vibrant sonic landscapes that make up our world, will facilitate a series of exercises designed to stimulate the “hunter-gatherer” precision of hearing. Participants will be encouraged to stretch underused auditory muscles, expand their reach and potential, and “think with their ears.”
This hour-long program, which is limited to 25 participants, will take place in the Media Arts Lab, 405 Manville Rd., down the street from the Theater. Please note: There is no media component to this program.
