Product description

On Listening is a unique collection of forty multi-disciplinary perspectives drawn from anthropology, bioacoustics, geography, literature, community activism, sociology, religion, philosophy, art history, conflict mediation and the sonic arts including music, ethnomusicology and field recording. These specially commissioned contributions explore the many ways in which skilled listening can mediate new relationships with our physical environment and the people and other species that we share it with. From the Introduction: "Listening has become an increasingly popular subject of study. It features in conferences, in academic journals, in doctoral research projects. However, reflexive listening is an applied practice that exceeds the boundaries of academic institutions to take its place in a number of everyday settings. This book aims to connect the scholarly and the experiential and extend the contemporary discourse on listening."

Enjoying this short collection of thoughts and essays, edited by one of my college lecturers. If, like me, you are intrigued by the thinking and back process/story behind artistic endeavours, you will enjoy this. This is not an instruction manual in field recording techniques, maybe combine this with one of the various instructional books out there (few good ones by Viers) and you'll be good to go.
