SlowCooker Series 1 Kim Cascone
Sun 25 October 2015, 11:30 – 16:30 GMT
Subtle Listening is a mode of listening where one's imagination is open to the sound world around them, helping their inner ear and outer world intersect. The ‘Subtle Listening’ workshop is a two-day workshop for musicians, media artists, filmmakers, composers, producers, sound designers, etc. who want to sharpen their listening skills. The workshop uses a wide range of techniques culled from Jungian psychology, Hermetic philosophy, paradox and Buddhist mediation, as well as thirty years of my own experience as a sound artist and electro-acoustic music composer. Through guided meditation, and listening exercises, participants will learn techniques they can use any time to help heighten their sensitivity to the sounds around them.
This is a remote workshop--the artist will offer workhops to participants through Skype.
