A listening room is a place where we listen and talk about what we hear.

Our first listening session is under the heading of "ancient sound". There is a spatial awareness in listening to sounds, a what is it exactly that we hear? What happens to the body as we listen? What happens to the mind as we hear? Our proposal is the investigation of the thing that connects us in air. It is everywhere, yet so rarely we can listen to extended periods. It is in these extended periods of listening that one can discover microsounds. The large ones all come on top.

Our first listening theme is ancient sound, of course we have no recordings of ancient sounds. But we can imagine.

The call is open to everyone, and we attempt to listen to everything that is sent to us as time permits. Sessions last a day, and everyone is free to come and go as they please.

If you wish to submit sounds or music please email us clearly stating as your subject ANCIENT SOUND SUBMISSION to alisteningroom (at) if you wish to submit something which is not online please wetransfer it to the same address, again clearly stating the subject. If you wish to write something about your submission please feel free to so do.

Fresh Chinese tee will be served during every session.
