Be Hear Now is a four-week workshop series dedicated to the art of listening. We’ll discuss and engage in using sounds and listening as a mindfulness practice, an art practice, and a tool for ecological study. Sessions will include discussion, listening to recorded works, and hands-on practice or fieldwork. Suggestions for activities or readings between sessions will be offered but not required. A workbook for reflection and field notes will be provided, as well as links to supplemental readings, helpful websites, and suggestions for further study.
Session One: April 28th – Mindful Listening
Session Two: May 5th – Soundwalks: Art & Ecology
Session Three: May 12th – Capturing Sounds
Session Four: May 19th – Playing with Sounds
This series is open to all–no experience, expertise, or technical know-how required. Equipment, when needed, will be provided. Participants may attend individual sessions or register for the entire series at a discount.
