How does mobile audio technology transform our perceptual techniques?
How does an anthropology of sound and the senses offer new insights into our everyday life with sounds?
We invited two of the most important international researchers in the field of sound studies, Jonathan Sterne and Veit Erlmann, to an afternoon of explorations: to explore the anthropology and cultural history of audile techniques – as examples of sensory technologies in populare culture. An audio performance by AGF a.k.a Antye Greie is at the center of this symposion. Michael Bull and Peter Wicke will respond to the two main lectures.
An introduction into sound studies as a – rapidly expanding and developing – transdisciplinary and international field of research.
