Event description

Description

To listen is to reverberate in the here and now. Good Listener is one possible iteration of an ongoing practice that examines listening critically. It is an invitation to listen, in different ways, to different sounds, some of which might happen to be music. This partially improvised performance combines and borrows from live music, lectures, stand-up comedy, and installation to create an auditorium in which how we make meaning through listening is questioned. Good Listener will ask questions such as “how do we listen?”, “does it really matter what music is?” and that age old quandary, “is Steely Dan actually good?”.


Eastman Presser is a musicker currently based in London. His practice takes interaction between sound and the body as a starting point for creating situations that humorously problematize ideas of listening, genre, and mediation. His practice synthesizes percussion, electro-acoustic music, media theory, and performance theory. He has performed internationally in the US, UK, and Germany.
