Anti-Valentines Listening Party with FLAW Collectiveworkshop • 13 Feb 2021 12pm–2pm
The Anti-Valentines Listening Party is an opportunity for people to come together and share sounds, songs and recordings that resonate with them personally. The theme for the session is non-romantic human connections.
Participants will be asked to bring along a piece of audio (a field recording, a song, a poem) for collective listening. Afterward, participants will have the opportunity to share their relationship with that recording with the group.
The session will take place over zoom and we will initially use our webcams to introduce ourselves but for the main body of the session we will be audio only to focus all of our attention on deep listening.
This will be an intimate session and will be limited to ten places. Participants will be asked to submit their sounds ahead of the session. If you want to take part but don’t have access to a laptop and/or headphones please get in touch and we can provide for the duration of the project. This workshop is aimed at audiences aged 12+. Intergenerational collaboration between your household is encouraged.
