Program Description

The Artist Residency Programme 2021 at the Spatial Sound Institute in Budapest, Hungary, calls for creators from a variety of disciplines to submit proposals for the development of new pedagogical approaches that make use of spatial sound technologies and listening-based practices. Our residency projects centralise the need for interdisciplinary exploration that could construct bridges over the uncharted areas of underexplored topics concerning sound and feature a broad spread of topics and presentation modes that seek to re-examine and to adopt a more critical attitude within the model of what we call the Ecology of Listening. Under this philosophy, we have hosted our previous residency programmes and continue to probe further. Works created by artists, architects, researchers, engineers and developers have showcased several emancipatory forms of participation that provide significant inspiration to address our key areas of study.
