NOISE will consider the philosophical discourse underwriting what has been called the hegemony of vision, the deeply seated visual bias dominating Western thought and culture since the ancient Greeks. Turning toward the faculty of hearing, well construct a critical theory of sound by foregrounding both the ways in which we hear (casual, concentrated, distracted) as well as the contexts in which listening takes place (i.e., the social and historical conditions of reception that give meaning to what is heard). We will explore audio art in its widest sense: sound sculpture and installations, radio art, the soundtrack, just about anything audible but not conceived as music. Across the scope of the seminar we will emphasize the production (and reception) of sound by artists, amplifying those creative efforts that, in having explored acoustics, soundscapes, and listening, might also serve to inspire students to incorporate sound in their own work.
