About the event

Sound and silence: ways of listening

Facilitated by Dr Tansy Spinks

‘Walk so silently that the bottoms of your feet become ears’

 (Pauline Oliveros, Sonic Meditations)

The practice of healthcare requires ‘deep’ listening and yet how much attention do we pay to sound in comparison to sight?  Sound artist, lecturer and musician, Dr Tansy Spinks (Middlesex University), will facilitate two workshops introducing Michael Chion’s three modes of listening. In between sessions participants will be given a score or ‘sound walk’ to follow in their local environment and some short readings reflecting on ways in which we receive, analyse and filter sound. These workshops are introductory and participatory.  All staff and students welcome.

Participants are encouraged to attend both sessions:

Workshop 1 — Monday, 16 November, 4.30–5.30pm

Workshop 2 — Monday, 30 November, 4.30–5.30pm
