WHAT SOUNDS DO - Online Launch Event with Listening Sessions & Conversations with Contributors

Presenters: Vita Zelenska, Emery Petchauer & Ruth Nicole Brown, Morten Poulsen, Francisco Mazza together with the co-editors Giada Dalla Bontà, Ania Mauruschat, Jenny Gräf Sheppard & Holger Schulze (KU).


Recently, the #30 Special Issue of Seismograf was published under the title WHAT SOUNDS DO: New Directions in an Anthropology of Sound. This special issue merges Seismograf's ongoing exploration of the format of the audio paper with the investigation into an anthropology of sound that mark the various projects conducted at the Sound Studies Lab at the University of Copenhagen.

We, the four editors of this special issue, wish to celebrate all of this great work now published with all of our contributors, our team at Seismograf and everyone who cares for sound, experimental sonic research, and the arts of presenting scholarly work! At this little launch event we will gather around our videoscreens and listen to excerpts of four selected audio papers and discuss with their producers and authors some of the issues, research approaches, and artistic practices that made them possible.
