Before booking your ticket please review the information below regarding your data.

With Marina Warner, artist and Royal School of Art lecturer Aura Satz will discuss her project 'Preemptive Listening’, a sound and film work on siren signals in relation to hyper-vigilance and emergency. Satz is working collectively with musicians, historians, philosophers, neuroscientists and more to explore the siren sound as a perceptual trigger of high alert, structuring attention in a state of emergency and inducing affective states of fear and dread, but also as a compositional signal operating at the threshold between civil obedience and disobedience. She posits the siren’s loud glissando wail as a conditioned and learned signal, one that can potentially be rewired.
