Prof. Michel Chion presenting [via Skype] on Critique de la Notion de Schizophonie (a Critique on the Notion of Schizophonia)
Interpretations and representations of reality benefit immensely from engagements with sound, whether as a standalone phenomenon or as part of multi-sensory experience.
However, as composers, listeners, and researchers of sound our approaches to working with sonic realities are bound by subjectivities. This is often influenced by our ideologies and socio-cultural experiences of our sonic environment.
With this conference, we wish to shed light on the aesthetic, scientific, technical, historical, social, cultural, psychological, and philosophical ways in which we approach and work with our sonic reality.
