‘Come’, they say, ‘Come out of the days heat, / out of shaded rooms, let’s escape and slip away, / let the veils fall, one by one. / Slide into pools that lie like mirrors of the sky, / and let the moon wash over our bodies.’ (Imtiaz Dharker, 2006)

listening workshop by HIAS resident Kiriakos Spirou

“Listening to Listening: A Workshop on the Everyday Aesthetics and Politics of Sound”

In all our activities, day and night, we are immersed in sound. We are constantly hearing things, as we commute to work or when at home watching videos online. But are we truly listening to what’s happening around us? In this workshop we will examine different ways of listening, and playfully explore the sonorous world that we traverse daily: what detail and information hides in the more subtle sounds of our actions and social interactions? Can we learn more about ourselves and the others if we try to listen more closely?

This workshop will be delivered in two parts.The first is formulated as a presentation/talk of a theory of listening, based on the inspiring writings of Jean-Luc Nancy, John Cage and others. We will see how listening can be “a way of being in the world” and a common ground for social interaction and understanding that is sometimes overlooked in our culture. The second part consists of listening exercises and activities, as an open exploration of listening in combination to movement and being with others: by immersing ourselves in the sounds of our environment, the tiniest details of our everyday lives are exposed, which then inform our interaction with others and the world.

The duration of the workshop is two hours. The workshop is open to performers, students and the general public. Participants are encouraged to bring comfortable clothes that they can move in, as well as their journal/diary.

About the workshop leader: Kiriakos Spirou is a composer, pianist and writer, currently living in the Netherlands. His research focuses on collaborative composition and improvised performance. As a composer and performer he’s worked extensively in contemporary dance theatre, and he’s presented his work in Greece, Cyprus, USA, Italy, the Netherlands and the UK.
