NAKED EAR: Tools & Techniques for Sound Art

In this workshop led by artist Johann Diedrick, participants will have the opportunity to listen to subtle sounds in the environment with the help of mobile listening kits (handmade microphones and amplifiers). The workshop encourages listeners to reimagine their sonic environment by playfully exploring the world through their ears.


Listening & Object Session

Curator Kevin Repp selects a range of sound recordings and related archival materials and objects from the collection of the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library.


Artist Presentation: Jennie C. Jones

Jennie C. Jones shares her sound works From the Low to Higher Resonance (2011–14) and Tone (2014), and speaks about her creative process. Followed by Q&A.


Screening of Gil J Wolman’s L’Anticoncept (1951)

A sound film without images, L’Anticoncept projects stroboscopic flashes of light onto an inflated weather balloon. First shown at Cannes in 1952 alongside experimental films by other Lettrist artists, L’Anticoncept was swiftly banned in France. A year after the original screening, Guy Debord commented that it is “more offensive... than the images of Eisenstein, which frightened Europe for so long." L’Anticoncept has been shown in America on only a handful of occasions, and is featured today due to the generosity and support of the Estate of Gil J Wolman.


Introduced by Andrew Vielkind (PhD candidate, History of Art/Film & Media Studies, Yale).
