Fem Poem

Resonant fabrics: sonic sensations and socialization

Guest of this episode of FEMPOEM is sociologist, sound expert and writer Marvin Alexander Heine.

He just recently finished his unpublished book „resonant fabrics: listening to the reciprocal relationships between aural architectures, sonic sensations and processes of socialization“.

In the first part Marvin Heine reads the subchapter „Sonic Assemblages and the City“- after that he is in dialog with Romina Achatz- about our often forgotten sense of acoustic perception, of listening, of sound.

We constantly produce sound and our physical reality is deeply affected by sound in the present moment. How can we cultivate or train the skill of acoustic perception? We talk about Contemporary city’s Intersecting Sonic Layers, silencing as a political strategy, natural soundscapes, the institutionalization of senses, about the role of sounds for our mental health, bird songs in Spaceships ecc. Furthermore, Marvin  reads chapters out of his new book- for example about silence during the Lockdowns in times of Covid 19. Is there a way out of the hegemony of vision?
