Brandon LaBelle – The acoustic & More
Sound can be appreciated as forming a unique paradigm, locating our field of relations according to experiences of listening, acoustics, auditory memory, speech, etc. Following the particularity of the auditory paradigm, the presentation maps out acoustical spatiality as a process of interference, multiplication, and othering, to suggest a more pronounced relational perspective on what it means to hear.
