OtherIt is not enough to perceive the world as legible or visible. Instead, we need to understand its audibility. We explore how noise is part of modernity, how noise comes to be reconstituted as sound, and how ‘musical noise’ emerges.

Attentive to our location in Hong Kong, and to the contemporary emergence of new forms of political subjectivity relating to voicing and being heard, we want to discuss transitions from cognitive listening to feeling-listening; also issues of silence and silencing. We elaborate the meaning of resonance as referring to points of connection and engagement (Hong Kong in the World), and emphasize the importance of “listening to how we listen”.

Day 1: A sound art event at Tai Kwun, curated by Dayang Yraola, and including leading HK sound artists Cheuk Wing Nam (Wing), Dennis Wong (aka Sinned), and Nelson Hiu. The performance is to be followed by a discussion led by Soundpocket founder Yang Yeung and sound theorist/musician Nina Sun Eidsheim.

Day 2, at Lingnan University: six discussion sessions led in turn by UCHRI and LU faculty: Ackbar Abbas, David Theo Goldberg, Nina Sun Eidsheim, Ashish Rajadhyaksha, Anjeline De Dios, and Tejaswini Niranjana.
