Matt Green will facilitate a workshop on the theme of the aural-perceptual abilities of differing animals. The workshop is to be practical, open and explorative. The workshop shall address critical listening, field recording and sound processing, and culminate with a mask making activity inspired by the work of Clyde Doyle. If consideration of why a Barn Owl’s ears are asymmetric, one ear being higher than the other, appeals to you, then please join us. Likewise, if deep reflective listening to the sound environment through the guise of our non-human compatriots appeals, then come along.
Human animals designing for non-human animals is not uncommon, but is it possible to design and make, not just for other species, but with other species? Clyde Doyle’s experimental workshop will use new design methods to explore our zones of proximity with other beings. Using signs in the world shared with other species to analyse information, our aim will be to develop empathy with those beings.
This session is free but booking is essential.
