A Nomad’s Guide to Listening

The sounds of everyday offer an entryway into a poetic contemplative mood in which a constant traveller of the physical world may indulge involving pre-cognition. Instead of articulating corporeal “things” in the physical space of the world the traveller may prefer to remain detached as an elevated self and engage with the streams of thoughts triggered by the infinite sonic events emanating from the physical world into the domain of a metaphysical mindfulness as an inward resonance of listening. The intention of the artists’ book project is to explore these mindful sonic states by examining the relationship between various interwoven sound environments or auditory situations and their contemplative, intuitive and introspective capacities at triggering streams of thoughts in the itinerant listener’s mind, transcending mere epistemic comprehension of the sonic phenomenon. These thought processes, when expressed into textual forms, can render subjectivity and poetics involved with the juxtaposition of physical navigation and their virtual interpretations. The project thus uses information about listener’s navigation between digital and physical boundaries incorporating them into an artistic production.

I plan to develop the artist’s book during the residency period towards its publication. The artists’ book contextualizes streams of thoughts triggered by an itinerant listener’s interaction with various intermingling auditory situations leaving their traces in listening. The primary activity will consist of editing the sound and text materials for publication, complemented by knowledge exchange with local community making a presentation/talk.
