Mathias and Julia will initiate the participants on different modes of listening and the way to practice ecological communication. The workshop will be a gateway to this technique of communication and accompaniment. Using acousmatic music, they will link this technique to how to listen to acousmatic music. The participants will learn how to develop and sharpen perception via emotion. Practically, participants will generate metaphors from their emotions and Mathias and Julia will apply clean language between participants, based on their self-generated metaphors on the theme ‘Listening / Listening to the other / Listening oneself’. The workshop will be conducted over two days. Participants should bring along a notebook, pencils, and colour pencils.
