How we listen 

Workshop with Taibah Orpin as part of doing together 2023

Tuesday 4 April 2023

doing together is a yearly two-day making and sharing practice symposium at Locksbrook Campus, hosted by Bath Spa University’s Centre of Cultural and Creative Industries and Art Research Centre. Workshops, delivered by staff and PGR students from across the University, share practice-based research methods and a broad range of approaches to practice. doing together is proposed as a generous space to make/do/share and discuss practice with colleagues from a range of different Schools. Throughout the symposium, facilitators - alongside participants - test out ways of doing together in an effort to make their practice-based research explicit, rather than simply describe it.

How we listen was an interactive work designed to explore how we listen to music. The piece consisted of a series of short listening experiences that encouraged participants to consider when and how they usually listen to music. For Doing Together, participants were invited to explore each of these listening experiences individually during the symposium before coming together at the workshop. During the workshop, we explored how each listening experience changes when we listen as a group and discuss How we listen.
