Listen, My Heart to the Whispers of the World… Report, Listening Party and Travelling Show
Listen, My Heart to the Whispers of the World with which It Makes Love to You took place on Feb 2nd, 2013 at DT Cinemas, DLF Center, as part of Khoj’s “An Evening of Sound” event.
As one of the artists from the show, Shuddhabrata Sengupta from RAQS Media Collective, summed it up:
I knew that this show would be cool: I didn’t realize until I was there in the dark theater that it would be amazing.
Eight soundscapes of India were presented in all six auditoriums of the DT Cinema, on loop so that visitors could freely come and go between. About 300 visitors attended the show, including a mix of local and international audience.
Listen, My Heart… was a tremendous “proof of concept” for ((audience)) cinema for the ear. We are deeply grateful to Khoj and DT Cinemas for making this Delhi premiere such a success. You can read brief descriptions of all of the works on Khoj’s page for the event, which includes our Curatorial Statement. (A version of the Curatorial Statement is also available on our blog.)
And now, we would like to share this program with the world! A “travelling version” of Listen My Heart… is available: An hour-long program for presentation in one cinema hall, including Iain Armstrong, diFfuSed beats, Michael Northam, RAQS Media Collective and Hildegard Westerkamp! And we will be having a small “Listening Party” on March 17th here in New York:

Supply / Demand
E.S.P. TV in collaboration with ((audience)) and Harvestworks Digital Media Lab Center presents Supply / Demand, a three-part series of panel discussions which gather practitioners from art and industry to discuss the metamorphosis of Audio Visual Media in general and the opportunities of on-demand distribution.
The series kicks off this Thursday with Supply/Demand part 1: Radio to Internet. This first event in the Supply/Demand aims to disentagle our current “media convergence” by focusing on how radio has been transformed by the internet. This panel begins with a journey back in time to the utopian moment at the turn of the millennium, when a number of radio pirates, community broadcasters, hackers and activists were making their first internet radio broadcasts. What were artists working with “hybrid-radio” anticipating for the future at that time? And what opportunities do they see on the horizon for audio art and transmission art in the age of media convergence?
John Anderson, author of Radio’s Digital Dilemma, the first critical and comprehensive analysis of the U.S. digital radio transition; professor of Television and Radio at Brooklyn College.
Jonathan Jay, microradio pioneer from Seattle’s legendary Studio-X internet radio station
Tom Roe, Artistic Director free103point9.
