Through the methodologies of Pauline Oliveros alongside contemporary sonic theories, clara hancock and gentian rhosa will lead participants through an immersive introduction to sound, listening and noise, followed by a sound walk where participants will practice and embody the effects of noise through Deep Listening.

clara hancock is a Glasgow-based multidisciplinary artist. working primarily across sound-design, filmmaking and writing, their work is centred around affective and embodied experiences of place; how the contours of public space are shaped and reshaped by public feeling. they are interested in exploring the poetics and possibilities of infrastructure, to seek resistances to contemporary architectures of power; using sound and the act of listening as crucial points of entry to construct and illuminate alternative spatialities.

gentian rhosa is a multidisciplinary artist and writer working predominantly with text and sound. Her work navigates through psychology, grief, death studies, ecology, ritual and sound studies. she is interested in how the embodied voice might reconfigure and complicate the binary poles of presence and absence, inside and outside, private and public, personal and political.
