Second HLC symposium:
Hearing Landscape Critically: Music, Place, and the Spaces of Sound
9-11 September 2013 – Stellenbosch University (South Africa)
The conveners are delighted to extend an invitation to interested music faculty students and staff for the second HLC symposium. For more information, online registration and a full programme, please visit http://musiclandscapeconference.wordpress.com/.
The second meeting of the ‚Hearing Landscape Critically‘ network (Stellenbosch University, 9-11 September 2013) is concerned with finding ways to articulate and listen to landscape that challenge established patterns of cognition and intervention, and which probe the archival and everyday silences and ruptures exacerbated by social, political and intellectual intervention. Following the first meeting at Oxford University, May 2012, the Stellenbosch symposium marks the continuation of an inter-disciplinary and inter-continental project addressing the intersections and cross-articulations of landscape, music, and the spaces of sound. Whilst this symposium aims to bring together a wide-ranging set of subjects and disciplinary approaches, contributions concerned with the unique dynamics of music and sound in (South) African landscapes are especially welcome.
