PUBLIC LECTURE: UWA Music presents: Museum of Sound Series
|UWA Music presents: Museum of Sound Series : Seeing is Deceiving: The Non-visual Aspects of Rock Art
Do you remember the sound of dial-up internet? What about the whistle of an old kettle or a wine cork popping? Sounds, noise and music are fundamental to our lives.
Join us to explore our sonic past and present and learn how our lives are shaped by sound and listening. Presented in collaboration with the City of Perth Library.
Sound in the form of language and music make us human. But what is the archaeological evidence for sound? In this talk we will take a global look at sound, music, language, art and human evolution, before focusing on the San or 'Bushman' of southern Africa.
Sven Ouzman is an archaeologist, lecturer and activist at UWA’s School of Social Sciences. Dr Ouzman researches the forgotten worlds beneath and all around us, and is currently exploring areas such as Indigenous rock art in the North Kimberley and the South African colonial circuits of knowledge and heritage. He is a member of the Centre for Rock Art Research and Management at the University of Western Australia.
