Jennifer Lucy Allan creates and considers sonic safe spaces with her guest, academic Mack Hagood. Hear work from composer Daniel Fishkin and violinist Mandhira de Saram.
Noise-cancelling headphones, white noise, and phone apps playing relaxing natural sounds are increasingly ubiquitous. In Mack Hagood’s recent book ‘Hush’ these devices are labelled “orphic media”, referencing the mythical Orpheus who counteracted the fatal song of the Sirens by playing a song of his own, fighting sound with sound to create a safe space.
So, with the growth of technology that allows users to control their environment and practise sonic self-care, how does our relationship to noise, music, and listening change as a result? Mack Hagood is an author, podcaster, and professor at Miami University in Ohio. He joins presenter Jennifer Lucy Allan to discuss his research.
Within tonight’s discussion, hear experiments in music, sound, and listening from composer Daniel Fishkin, violinist Mandhira de Saram, and Deep Listening pioneer Pauline Oliveros.
