We look into how listening as culture can be seen without referencing music. We choose to think of culture in this context as a meaning that is drawn towards the metaphor and beyond the listener and the listened to.

 

PHONO-DOC II, returning for a second season, continues examining how phonography has affected society particularly in South America., while SOUND ART & SOCIAL HISTORY engages participants in the creation of recordings within the context of Sound Art. A HISTORY OF SOUND ART gives a sweeping and fascinating insight into the last 100 years of sound art and RADIOPHONICS examines story telling and narrative through the art of Foley and sound design. DARKFIELD delivers haunting live immersive storytelling using sound.
