The Art of Listening | weekly workshops

24.11.2022 @ 19:00 - 21:00

 Arno Babajanyan Concert Hall | Ground Floor

Weekly workshops by Theatrum Phonosophicum (Leopoldo Siano and Shushan Hyusnunts)

• For anyone who has two healthy ears, listening is something obvious, that everyone can do. But there is a substantial difference between “hearing“ and “listening“.
Listening is actually an authentic art and if practiced, it can significantly enrich our being in the world. Not infrequently even professional musicians are not really used to listening to what they are performing, in the sense of perceiving the occurrence of sounds in the global space-time continuum.
• In these weekly workshops (one can join at any time) we want to encourage sensitive, active, and deep listening, starting from the ideas of artists such as John Cage, Pauline Oliveros, Francisco López, and others. Participants are introduced to listening to sound and silence, to the sonic landscapes that surround us in daily life, discussing the “acoustic ecology” problems and “sound walks” are also planned. The participants will discover the conscious, mindful, and creative listening of art music and its profound wisdom messages.
• The listener is not a passive recipient, but a creator!
 Duration of each session: 2 hours
• Language: English and Armenian
