The Light & Shadow Salon presents:


curated by The School of Sound

Listen: to make the effort to hear something; to hear with attention

Whether at a concert or the theatre, in a cinema, facing some sort of screen or out on the street, we have images to keep our hearing company. This, the second LISTENING! programme curated by the SOS, is an opportunity for people to listen, as a group, without pictures. To immerse yourselves in unfamiliar worlds and strange stories; to confront unexpected emotions, feelings, impressions; to share the unseen with those around you – all through sound.

Narrative, abstract, radio, sound art – LISTENING! extends from documentary to the surreal. With selections by Mark Peter Wright, Jeremy Creighton Herbert and Mikey Kirkpatrick, Emmanuel Spinelli, Wricke Wolfe, Werner Cee, Gen Doy, the Firesign Theatre, Hildegard Westerkamp and others. Introduced by Larry Sider.

The School of Sound explores the creative use of sound in the arts and media. Since 1998, we have presented an international symposium and specialist workshops that investigate soundtracks and the relationship between sound, music and image.
