Ways of Hearing
Ways of Hearing is a national programme of research and knowledge exchange focused on listening. Practitioners from a broad range of disciplines are engaging in a programme designed to create an interdisciplinary exploration of how sound impacts on our understanding and shaping of the city.
Established by Sound and Music with national and local partners, the programme has 36 participants from a range of disciplines within the arts, engineering, technology, architecture, planning and music; all of these participants agreeing to contribute their research to a wider understanding of the act of listening within urban environments.
The cities of London, Bristol and Leeds have been selected to play host to this highly skilled group of practitioners. The research developed will become part of a new archive of current practice in this field. Regional partners for the Ways of Hearing include Opera North and Lumen (Leeds), Musarc (London) and Arnolfini and The Architecture Centre (Bristol).
