Journal of Sonic Studies: Listening

The latest Vol. 2 of the international online- & peer reviewed Journal of Sonic Studies (based in Leiden & Nijmegen/The Netherlands) is online now. It presents a selection of articles on one crucial subject of sound studies: the question how and in what instances human beings do listen. The articles reflect seminal artistic position and research approaches (Schafer, Oliveros) as well as contemporary and progressiv approaches (Voegelin, Jing), e.g.:
