13-12-2017 12:00:00 13-12-2017 12:00:00 America/New_York Ear Yoga: Think With Your Ears | 6:30 - 7:30 PM Often dampened due to pressures of the modern urban soundscape, our capacity to truly listen and absorb the everyday can be minimized or ignored. In Ear Yoga, re-tune your ears to the primal sense of acute hearing. Sound Artist Bruce Odland has spent his career highlighting the complex and vibrant sonic landscapes that make up our world. In this intimate workshop, Odland will facilitate a series of exercises designed to stimulate the "hunter-gatherer" precision of hearing. Participants will be encouraged to stretch underused auditory muscles, expand their reach and potential, and "think with their ears." A pioneer in sound installations, Bruce Odland is an artist who thinks with his ears. His first public sound installation, SUN SONG, broadcasted a four-channel cloud of reverberant sound over an outdoor festival in Denver from the Clock Tower of East High in 1977. Since then he has discovered resonance and beauty in both the fractal music of nature and the transformation of vast industrial soundscapes of cities into harmonic music. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=251938 Rubin Museum Rubin Museum
