Deep Listening Art/Science International Conference
Deep Listening: Art/Science
The first International Conference on Deep Listening
July 12-14, 2013
Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC), Troy, NY
Organized by the Deep Listening Institute, Ltd. in conjunction with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Deep Listening has been developed by Pauline Oliveros over the past 40 years as a way to enhance attention, listening and creativity for all. To this end it draws upon a wide variety of embodied practices as well as theories of cognitive science, and has been applied to a variety of fields. This includes pedagogy across all levels of education, creative arts therapy, the realization of new creative works, developing new performance paradigms across abilities and the pairing with new technologies to advance all of these fronts and more. The conference Deep Listening: Art/Science invites practitioners and scholars to consider the experience of this practice and its use in creation, communication and education. This call equally invites scientific and philosophical discussions that describe the efficacy of the approach or point towards new directions or applications of Deep Listening. We invite proposals that may include scholarly lectures, a poster presentation, experience-oriented expositions/demonstrations, or a mixture of these two.
Confirmed invited presentations include composer/performer and Deep Listening founder Pauline Oliveros as well as Auditory Neuroscientist Seth Horowitz, author of "The Universal Sense: How Hearing Shapes the Mind".
Conference goers will also have the opportunity to register for the 3-day workshop "Sound Sculpting and Deep Listening Through Electronics" with Doug Van Nort, which will take place July 9-11.
Registration includes access to all presentations and performance surrounding the two and half-day conference, as well as breakfast and coffee on Friday and Saturday.
SETH S. HOROWITZ, Ph.D. is a neuroscientist whose work in comparative and human hearing, balance and sleep research has been funded by the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, and NASA. He has taught classes in animal behavior, neuroethology, brain development, the biology of hearing, and the musical mind. As chief neuroscientist at NeuroPop, Inc., he applies basic research to real world auditory applications and works extensively on educational outreach with The Engine Institute, a non-profit devoted to exploring the intersection between science and the arts. His book "The Universal Sense: How Hearing Shapes the Mind" was released by Bloomsbury in September 2012.
