Klára Móricz standing outdoors

Professor Klára Móricz: "Crossing Impenetrable Borders: Leningrad’s Sonic Siege Diaries"

Free and open to the public. Lunch provided.

The music department is excited to kick off Research in Music, a new speaker series featuring talks by department faculty discussing their work.

In this first talk of the series, Professor Klára Móricz reconstructs the soundscape of besieged Leningrad during World War II, contrasting the actual and the imposed sound of the city and exploring how the constructed sound of Russia in war managed to cross seemingly impenetrable borders, whereas the actual sound of the siege remained hermetically sealed first in the besieged city and then in the survivors’ memory.
