Participants will learn how to develop their subtle sense of listening.
Subtle listening isn't listening attentively to barely audible sounds.
Subtle Listening is the ability to hear sounds as shapes, contours and
textures and, via meditation techniques, map them to internal states,
developing a deeper awareness and sensitivity to the environment.
During the workshop we will practice techniques culled from Jungian
psychology, Hermetic philosophy, Rhythmanalysis, synesthesia, paradox &
Buddhist mediation and brain entrainment. Subtle Listening is not just
another meditation class, the workshop participants will work towards
creating a sound art piece derived from their experiences in the
workshop – and there is a possibility of pieces being broadcast on radio.
While the workshop is designed with developing one's auditory sense in
mind any type of artist can participate. Whether you are a poet, writer,
photographer, painter, filmmaker, dancer, musician or sound artist your
work will benefit from a heightened, subtle sense of being connected to
the world around you.
