What does it sound like here?

15-minute talk with David Jensenius • Saturday 12:00 pm

David will explore a question that everyone should ask at least once in a while: “What does it sound1 like here2?” — and he’ll leave you aurally enlightened. His talk will include sonic examples of unknown quality3 that will be presented in an indeterminate order. A notebook or strong beverage4 is recommended.

1 One or more vibrations represented by real-time listening, any number of recording technologies, or (non-)instruments whether acoustic or electronic playing a method of abstraction that can include transcription, sonification, translational, etc.

2 This space at any number of varying temporal and geographic vectors.

3 In addition to unknown quality, an unknown quantity could also be presented, potentially simultaneously.

4 Coffee or grain alcohol.
