Listening to the Landscape

30 July, 2018 - 3 August, 2018

Reflections on the environment from a collective listening

4 to 7 pm

“Silence: kind of mystery and undergrowth between spaces and forgotten roads that remember”. The place where we live, the spaces we visit or the roads we travel, have their own acoustic image. No place sounds like another one. Listening to the landscape in its singularity, from a critique of our own conceptions about sound, noise and silence, gives us clues to understand our footprint in the world.

We will deepen in the concept of sound landscape, widely disseminated by the composer and pedagogue R. Murray Schafer. From this idea we will work with deep listening and sound walks with basic recording techniques. Finally, we will experiment with the sound of our voices and the word in the landscape, as witnesses of our passage through it.

Luis Martínez Campo is a musician and pedagogue. He carries out projects in which he relates music and sound with the performing arts, literature or the plastic arts, several of them linked to education. He is currently an artist in residence at the FCAYC, where he develops the project “The Sounds of the Rural School” with the grouped school Ribera del Porma. He has also added soundtrack to the poetry book The wind is already written by Jorge Pascual, a poet who will collaborate on the last day of the workshop.
