‘Time are legion’

A profound reflection by Carlo Rovelli inspired my term time species, following the understanding that all beings exist on their own time and my pursuit in bridging to these different scales of being, sonically.

It was in the act of listening that I found a deeper level of transportation, realised during my pursuits of stillness. Specifically a moment in Scotland, listening to moss and then in the creation of a soundscape from microbe grown material.

These listening-led experiences allowed me to reveal a new conscious appreciation of the microscopic factories at work around us all, all the time, negotiating, invading, caring, as they move and contaminate continuously.

Sonic Contamination Workshop - Extended Listening

The workshop is designed around the ideas of sonically bridging between human and the non-human. Inspired by Pauline Oliveros’ deep listening Sonic Meditations, and flow state (Mihály Csíkszentmihályi), the workshop includes exercises in how we can attempt to create states of conscious sonic contamination through listening. Utilising microphones that capture vibrational responses, to create extended listening states.
Through extended listening methods and different ways to respond independently and collectively.
