Transformations of the Audible


The symposium Transformations of the Audible aims to interrogate the factors and conditions which inform the way in which audibility is constituted. For this purpose it will gather artists, scholars, students and artist researchers from three domains – that of music, the arts and the scholarly field of sound studies – to address how artistic practices dealing with sound are traversed by and simultaneously operate upon the ways in which listening takes place.
