Aesthetic Practices of the Soundscape in Auditive Culture

 Leuphana University Lüneburg| B.A. Kulturwissenschaften | Module: Music and Audioculture| Tuesday 16:15 – 17:45 | Dong Zhou

The seminar will introduce the concept of artistic soundscapes from both aesthetic and technical sides. It will focus on the musical application of soundscape, namely in composition, sound art and multimedia performance. The study of soundscape in other fields like ecology, ethnomusicology, music therapy and politics will be discussed as well. Worldwide music and multimedia works from 1970s to 2019 will be presented and analyzed in order to help us to understand this topic from a contemporary perspective. The idea of the soundscape is connected to the aesthetics of site-specific composition, which also will be focused in the seminar.
