The Listening Academy, London
The Listening Academy aims to bring together participating scholars, researchers and artists, to share knowledge, practices, and research activities, and to collectively investigate creative and critical questions of listening. Listening is emphasized here as a transdisciplinary subject, one that moves across the humanities and society, and which contributes to fostering interpersonal and community relations.
Three members of Shortwave Collective participated in the Academy throughout the week August 29 – September 4, 2022, and shared our work during the 'networking day' on Saturday September 3. We set up a stall in the garden at Iklectik and strung up an Open Wave-Receiver, and in a presentation by members in the room and contribiting remotely via Zoon, we shared sounds and reflections on our recent work with homemade radios.
