Sounds of Space
30 November -
01 December 2012
The workshop Sounds of Space examined the fundamental role of technology, craft skills, and situated knowledge for realizing outer space and space exploration in sonic forms that resonate through physical, perceptual and imaginary worlds. Focusing on the period extending from the late 1940s to 1980, contributions explore ways in which sonic technologies, sound and music production, soundscapes, mass media and listening practices have shaped and been shaped by knowledge and understanding of outer space.
