About Episode 2:
This two-hour long second episode of Listening Club explores modalities of listening in general (to music and otherwise) that highlight the role of sound as audible description of the world around us.
This episode introduces us to alternative ways of discerning and understanding sound that expand our sonic vocabulary and help us appreciate the value of befriending that which we have learned to dismiss as “noise”.
About the Listening Club series:
Created by Gustavo Matamoros, the Listening Club is a series of listening experiences curated for the stimulation of the sound mind: the mind with which we listen. The 2022 season is in four parts and makes its Coral Gables debut in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Books and Books.
