Listening Session with Audrey Chen

With the Untraining the Ear Listening Sessions we propose exercises to decipher sound beyond its contextual affiliation of geography, genre, and valences of identity. It is an attempt to press pause to the daily storm of sonic vibrations, and voice a call to examine and explore the auditory beyond the hearing and start to listen.

Untraining the Ear Listening Session #2 presents Audrey Chen who works with aural and oral perceptions of time and living process, which in her performances, become a narrative and nonlinear storytelling. Her collection of sound materials (as filtered through the voice and cello) form a language which is freely used to express an abstract collage of her experience, memory, history, perspective, thoughts and emotions. The material is taken experientially and through feeling and listening, even subconscious hearing, which becomes stored as an accumulated “mass” of muscle memory, knowledge and personal biography.
