On Sunday 16 July 2023, at the Soundgallery 'ohrenhoch, der Geräuschladen' Berlin, the Sounding Knowledge Network team will present the project and a draft Zine produced using the very valuable thoughts and materials that many participants have contributed to during meetings and workshops over the past year.
The Sounding Knowledge Network aims to conceptualise and establish Sonic Pedagogy to address the under representation of sound within education and to contribute to teaching and learning through sensory and embodied experiences. It consists of musicians, sound artists, sound studies researchers as well as experts from Educations Studies and Pedagogy, especially Civic Education. The joint aim is to develop a multidisciplinary approach towards auditory teaching and learning that responds to the visuo-centrism of conventional educational methods and the resulting lack of participative and embodied learning opportunities. At this Salon, the network will present a Zine as a transferable toolkit for sonic teaching and learning which they have produced from the material developed and gathered during several workshops hosted in Germany and the UK over the last 12 months. The aim is to engender critique and discussion, to develop and advocate for a Sonic Pedagogy as a "sensational" and inclusive educational strategy that creates a future educational paradigm for all disciplines and educational frameworks.
As part of the presentation of the Zine, there will be participatory moments of testing and trailing its tools together, as well as a sonic composition by Kevin Logan that frames and reflects on the process of searching for an embodied educational paradigm.
This is a public event, all are welcome to join us. The exhibition of the Zine and a Sound Work created by Kevin Logan starts at 14:00, the presentation and participatory working starts at 16:00.
The material will be exhibited again on Sunday 23 July from 14:00.
The Sounding Knowledge Network is led by Principle Investigator Prof. Salomé Voegelin, Co-Investigator Dr. Werner Friedrichs, early career researchers Dr. Kevin Logan and Dr. Kerstin Meißner, coordinated by Dr. Tim Smith.
