Miami Science Museum. October 6th, 2007. 1:00 p.m.
Miami Science Museum is presenting a lecture by David Dunn titled Listening at the Edges at its Space Gallery located at 3280 South Miami Avenue. For over three decades there has been an ongoing discourse addressing the role that the sonic arts can play in increasing our collective awareness to environmental issues. A variety of approaches and strategies have used experimental music practices and audio recording technologies to document, compose preserve, study, manipulate, intensify, and otherwise attempt to bring issues of the natural environment into foreground awareness through sound.
This lecture demonstrates one approach to bringing art practice and scientific knowledge together towards applied environmental problem solving. It illustrates one of the many ways that the sonic arts can move beyond documentary and sensory heightening strategies alone towards participation in both scientific research and subsequent interventions to growing environmental dilemmas.
