In 2021 we made the podcast-series Sounding Places,
Listening Places, which is still available at Radio ArtEZ. In
it we explored how sound and listening can contribute to realizing
more sustainable and reciprocal relations with the earth. Back
then, we already dipped our toes in the world of Deep Listening®.
In the three-part podcast series Listening to the In-Between we
will put this rich practice into a broader context.
In Part I researcher and music journalist Joep Christenhusz explores Deep Listening, its connection to space and time, and the interrelations between the outer and the inner world the practice reveals through sonic awareness. He enters into conversations with Ed McKeon and Ximena Alarcón, who are well-experienced deep listeners. Alarcón describes the INTIMAL App© that she has developed over the last years.
The podcast forms a good introduction to the event around Pauline Oliveros’s Deep Listening practice on Wednesday October 5, hosted by ArtEZ Studium Generale in collaboration with Corpo-real, the master Interior Architecture at ArtEZ.
In our second episode, that will appear later this year, Deep Listener Sharon Stewart will guide you through practical Deep Listening exercises and open up the possibility for creating our own listening scores. In the third and last part we will dive deeper into theoretical concepts related to Deep Listening.

Dreaming while awake: a network of presence is a piece developed using the INTIMAL App© with the participation of eight walkers/improvisers/dreamers who joined Ximena Alarcón on April 10 and 11 2022 to listen for place and presence. This was part of the three concerts curated by Sarah Weaver at the Earth Day Art Model Telematic Festival, April 22.
