Vía Swamp Pavilion:
Experiences of listening may be understood to weaken us, making us vulnerable to the intensities of worldly contact and each other. Reflecting upon particular modes of listening, from the empathic to the migratory, understandings of sharing and togetherness will be drawn out, leading to a consideration of what we might call an acoustics of interruption. Accordingly, listening is posed as a framework through which formations of social solidarity and self-organization may be generated, where material and immaterial, real and imaginary forces are equally demanded.
