„Non-cochlear Music“: presentation by Viola Yip and Nicola Hein
Organisator: Viola Yip
Di 24. Juli 2018, 11:00 – 12:00
Coined by Seth Kim-Cohen, the term “non-cochlear sound”—a parallel to the non-retinal art such as Duchamp’s fountain— is used to invite an openness to “rehear [the sounds], rethink them and re-experience them from a non-essentialist perspective.”
We are trained to consider music and sounds through their sonic properties and within fixed notations from our musical training. In this presentation, I am implementing an unorthodox way to look at music as an abstract form of vibrational energies that is conceptualized in our bodies through our understanding of music. I argue that sound is only one of multiple musical materials, and that any other vibrational, non-aural forces can function as music.
Nicola Hein and Viola Yip is going to present their idea of „non-cochlear sound“ and the recent works that they have developed from the idea.
