Listening Fields #1

Mark the date!

April 7th, 2023 – 12 noon

The first episode of Listening Fields will be broadcasted on Radio Panik.

Listening Fields is a bi-monthly radio show that oscillates around various listening and field recording practices and the discourse surrounding them. We invite you to come listen to buzzing, squealing, chattering, fluttering – sounds that tell stories about the living and non-living beings we share our space with. For each show, we pay attention to the work of guests from different backgrounds that share an interest in the sounds of our ecologies. Where do we listen, how do we listen, what do we hear and what do we filter out? What attracts us and what repels us when listening to our surroundings? When do we start recording and when do we ask for consent? Are we present in the recording, or are we hidden? What can we learn by listening closely to our surroundings? We invite you to join the voices of sparrows, cicadas, rivers, deer, trees, winds and many others to echo in the ether what is often overheard.

In this first episode, I am looking forward to sharing the conversation with sound artist Els Viaene.

You can listen live on 105.4 FM or at a later moment as a podcast on the website of Radio Panik.
