The Art of Listening – Seoul, Korea

O+A led a week long workshop with artists and students exploring and mapping the Seoul soundscape via the Insa Art Space of the Arts Council Korea.

(think with your ears) since the renaissance we have had an agreed visual perspective, and language to speak accurately about images. this we still lack in the world of sound, where words fail us even to describe for instance the complex waveforms of an urban environment, much less what those sounds do to us and how they make us feel. we are lost in a storm of noise with no language for discussion.
