Amnon Wolman: Composing space and social context as part of the sound

5.30pm

Seminars

Public

The Department of Music in the The School of Arts and Social Sciences welcomes Amnon Wolman as part of its 2017-18 Research Seminar Series. The seminars are open to all - no registration necessary.

Abstract

It seems that the listener is the actual composer of the piece s/he chooses to hear. They form, individually, connections within the piece, decide to focus on one sound over others, and pause and resume their listening. These decisions are made based also on the space and the social context of the performance, and this talk will discuss their ramifications and possibilities.
