Concept

»Machines To Hear For Us« takes as a starting point Jonathan Sterne’s claim that concepts of listening and the development of new technologies have influenced each other throughout the history of electronic sound production.

How does this relationship become manifest in the exploration, revision and invention of (new) musical instruments, in sound art works or other sound generating machines? Practitioners, developers and theoreticians from the fields of sound art, instrument building, software development and media studies will present individual striking examples.

We will explore how organ flutes, hybrid analog/digital instruments, sound sculpture instruments or software instruments filter, store, reorganize and transform sounds – and how individual listening practices or performance practices adapt to, transform, or are irritated by these »Machines To Hear For Us«.
