THE WAY I HEAR
listening view 2013 at River Yubari, Yubari, Hokkaido
Is it possible to hear a sound that one has never heard before?
I have been asking this question for some years and travelled some places. I have listened to the surrounding sound with my ears, tried to recapture the situation by imitative learning and observation, consulted professionals, interviewed people, gone through historical archives, methodological datas, environmental datas, personal diaries, and mythes. They may not directly refer to soundscape, but through collective resources, it is possible to imagine what it could have been like to be in the certain moment and the place and "hear" it.
THE WAY I HEAR is my way of extending the modes of listening from auditory to more broader senses; listening = knowing.
