Arnau Horta: We are listening in a room

We are listening in a room is a sonic action-talk based around the hybridisation between two key works of 20th century sonic and conceptual art: 4’33’’ (1953) by John Cage and I am sitting in a room (1969) by Alvin Lucier. By subjecting the “silence” of the space in which the meeting will take place, Lucier’s device uncovers the resonance of its architecture: its “voice”. This exercise in “expanded listening” and “sonic uncovering” will be a starting point for a later discussion to examine various questions connected with the action of listening and its intimate connection with the act of inhabiting a space.
