PAULINE OLIVEROS LISTENING PROMPT
Helena Krobath


XXII-Think of some familiar sound. Listen to it mentally. Try to find a metaphor for this sound. What are the real and imaginary possible contexts for this sound? How many ways does or could this sound affect you? or how do you feel about it? What is its effect upon you? How can this sound be described?

My suggestion is to think of that prompt as a way to contemplate shifting sounds and shifting relationships to sounds during COVID19. I would love to hear your thoughts about this or other listening experiences, and I’ll keep journalling about my soundscapes, too.
