Pop Up your ears

Pop Up your ears - Sonic experiments in urban and domestic environments

The workshop focuses on the subjective perception of reality through sound, reframing everyday life details through the alteration of aural stimuli, playing with urban sonic opportunities and their parameters, which are often taken for granted, and rebooting the clichés of the sound apparatus in each of us.

The workshop is designed to comprise a series of field sessions where participants experience daily realities through simple experiments and hearing alteration devices, followed by sessions where their fresh impressions are creatively explored (through individual and collective devising exercises) and discussed.

These workshops were devised and led in collaboration with Ioana Paun and Tania El Khoury
