Hearing Beyond the Staves

In today’s digital age, information is produced, distributed and consumed in brief, instantaneous, and mostly visual bursts. Feeds, posts, stories, and tweets compete for likes, comments, and followers rather than coexist as waves of difference and nuance. As a result, authentic dialogue and listening have given way to a more polarized and turbulent discourse.

Although our vehicles of information, communication and community building have expanded exponentially with the help of technological innovation, there exists a need to revive education and creativity based on the human sense of hearing.

As a follow up to Hear, Think, Act: Jazz Forms of/in/for Life, we seek to expand our understanding of the auditory process and experience — in its physical, creative, and educational forms. The conference seeks to present a collage of knowledge organized around concepts, theories, ideas, projects, and works of art.
