In a week’s time, on Monday, October 9, kl.14-16 I would like to invite you to a slow and deep and meticulous conversation on listening and sounding – organized by one of our students at the University of Cpenhagen, Lukas Lund:
Invited by Lukas Lund and his Bureau for Listening, the composer Jesper Norda, the researcher and director of the Slow Research Lab, Carolyn F. Strauss, as well as yours truly will meet at kl.14 for a Listening Seminar at Bådehuset, right on Refshaløen, a quiet 5 minute walk from Copenhagen Contemporary – to inquire and wonder together about listening.
I will to ask:
Who listens in what way?
How and why do you sound?
What role could or did or will sound play in our or others’ lives, past or future?
How might you and I listen to this – and to potential future sound events?
In addition, two days earlier, on Saturday, October 7, between kl.8.00 and kl.20.25, you have the opportunity to listen to Jesper Norda‘s composition The Goldberg Variation (Bach Clock) – for one, two or more pianists from 2012 at the same place as our conversation, at Bådehuset right by Refshaløen.
Listen with us – will you?
