The Sound Practice Research Unit presents;
AURALDIVERSITY: towards a greater awareness of differences in hearing and listening
24 March 2020 | 5.30 - 7pm
Entry is free, All are welcome!
Much in the world of music and sound studies operates from the assumption that everyone hears the same, or hears in the same way. Yet this is not so. Any individuals capacities will change of the course of a life time; people may differ in regard to their physical hearing apparatuses or the cognitive functions relating to audio processing and there are also cultural sensibilities and preferences at play.
The Sound Practice Research Unit invites you to a panel considering issues of aural diversity. It is hosted by Dr Iris Garrelfs.
Confirmed speakers are Prof John Drever (Goldsmiths), who coined the terms auraltypical and auraldiverse hearing, Prof Andrew Hugill (University of Leicester) who founded the Aural Diversity project and Dr Annie Goh (University of the Arts London), whose research is concerned with sound, intersectional feminism, decolonial theory and the politics of knowledge production.
