Sound & Soundings October 29, 7:30-8:30pm

The range of a bell, inscribed in a classical perspective of harmony, served to define a territory that was haunted by the notion of limits as well as the threat of those limits being transgressed.
–Alain Corbin, Village Bells
Auditory communities are created when we all hear (or are forced to hear) the same sounds. Inclusive and excluding, such communities are formed or fractured, coalesced or disrupted by our ever-increasing use of portable electronic devices. In the era of bluetooth speakers and earbuds, we find ever more complicated ways to reach out or to close off, both positions fundamentally made possible through technological engagements. Sound is social; it can also be a weapon. Silence is golden; it can also sunder. Somewhere between these poles we all function. Tonight students and faculty in two classes that deal with sound in very different ways come together to think through its implications.

Cory Quirk Sound Installation Dec 18 & 19

Hamline student Cory Quirk is opening a sound art installation titled Nature & Urbanity for two evenings to display some of the audio he’s recorded over the past year at Hidden Falls Regional Park. The park is of particular interest being that it is located on the St. Paul bank of the Mississippi and is constantly blanketed with the booming drones from the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. The project seeks to distill the sonic experience of a city park apart from the visual one to document the mixture of sounds we consider to be natural with those we consider to be noisy and synthetic.
