Artist Talk with Stephen Vitiello

"Listening, Hearing and the Human" is a course taught by Associate Professor of Music Jeffers Engelhardt and Associate Professor of Music Darryl Harper that asks us to think about listening and hearing as culturally specific practices that are guided by particular histories, identities, technologies and other factors. All are invited to a talk by sound artist Stephen Vitiello, followed by a discussion led by Professors Engelhardt and Harper. This program is made possible with support from Amherst College Departments of Anthropology and Sociology and Music as well as Arts at Amherst.

This event is free and open to all.
