The Sonic Real Conference
The Sonic Real Onlince Conference focuses on recent debates on the real in philosophy and the sonic arts. Over the past decades, artistic positions in experimental music and sound art have been questioning the emphasis on subjectivity while exploring the unnoticed and the inaudible. Ongoing investigation of the thresholds of audibility, sonic media reflexivity and the relationships between sound and space show the increased interest in an aesthetics of the real.
Select theorists from philosophy, media theory and musicology as well as musicians will discuss the relationship between the different theoretical notions of the real and the sonic arts.
This D-A-CH project conference is co-hosted by the Zürcher Hochschule der Künste and the IMR Institute for Music Research and funded by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft and the Swiss National Science Foundation.
