Loads of great stuff in the Unsound Intermission program announcement - Machine Listening with Liquid Architecture, Fractal Fantasy, James Hoff and Speaker Music (killleerrrr), a deep listening workshop with Laraaji, etc - kicks off Oct 1 with limited rego for some sessions https://www.unsound.pl/en/intermission/schedule_intermission
@benbyrne so keen for Laraaji's deep listening session, i've registered even though it's at 6:30am our time 😅
@becfary yeah I don't think I can listen deeply at 6:30am, but maybe I should at least try
@benbyrne just listen deeply...to how tired you are?
@becfary i guess I could just stay up all night?
@benbyrne i made it 😌 listening to ambience on zoom is... not ideal, but it was still a really nice start to the day - and so cool to see Laraaji in the zone, lots of smiles. kinda makes me want to stay up late//early for his laughter workshop on the weekend
@becfary glad it was worth the early start. any particularly interesting techniques?
@benbyrne it was a livestream performance (not sure why they called it a workshop but I'm okay with that). was a really nice slow build/crescendo over an hour or so, mixing field recordings and (I think) music. aside from the lapping water sounds which I obviously loved, I was especially struck by his use of breath, moving around the mic and making abstract vocals. I hadn't heard him experiment with voice like that before so it was very cool
Meeting, discussion and sharing space for those working critically and creatively with experimental digital sound, art and design, especially listening, technology, ecologies, capitalism and living through and beyond all of these
