Listening Across Disciplines
In the twentieth broadcast of the series Thomas Gardner, composer, improviser, teacher, computer programmer and academic, course leader of the MA Sound Arts at the London College of Communication, UAL, will be talking about musical measurements, equality and hierarchy; and put his audience through an exercise of rhythmic counting.
A weekly radio programme that presents methods of listening as they are practised by astrophysicists, urbanists, architects, audiologists, artists, anthropologists, writers, neurologists, etc. Each week a different professional, academic, or researcher will introduce their listening methods, play examples of their work, and discuss how they analyse and use what they hear.
The weekly broadcasts are an edited version of discussions that are taking place as part of an AHRC (Arts and Humanities Research Council) funded network project of the same name that aims to explore the use of listening across various disciplines in order to advance it as a reliable and legitimate method of investigation and communication in which culture and science can collide to generate new knowledge and innovative modes of knowledge production.
Listen on Resonance FM, Wednesdays at 3pm (or Monday at 11 am):
Full documentation and archives of the radio shows will also be made available on the LxD website.
