Description

SSSSHHHH is a series of listening events focusing on text-sound and acoustic works which explore the phonemic characteristics of language. The compositions included are texts meant to be sounded and heard. The works in this series explore the potential to aurally enhance language through an engagement with language considered primarily as units of sound rather than solely as units of meaning. Emphasis will be placed on voice in relation to electro-acoustic, sound tuning, amplification and recording equipment, and on works composed for multiple voices.

Organized by Kamau Amu Patton in collaboration with Flaxman Library Special Collections and supported by the department of Visual and Critical Studies.
