#The Listening Études

Lawrence English (Room 40)

In a year of unprecedented quietening, it seems apt to focus our listening and reach out into the world through our ears. As the world slowed, and as the ambient noise of our city fell away, a new and expanded sense of the sonic in our everyday lives became available. As the world reawakens, composer and artist Lawrence English curates a series of durational site-and situation-specific sound happenings to celebrate this sense of deeper listening.
