UWA Music presents: Museum of Sound Series : Sound all Around: Introducing Sound Studies Other events...
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 all Around: Introducing Sound Studies Presented by Dr Sarah Collins

From the invention of the stethoscope to hear the secret sounds of the body, to the contemporary world of ipod and loudspeaker, this talk will trace a history of listening that will make you hear anew the sounds that shape our lives every day.

Sarah Collins works in music history at the UWA Conservatorium of Music. Her research concerns how perceptions of music and sound have shaped ideas about emotions, rationality, national identity and political participation in the past, and what these can tell us about our own soundscapes today.
