I am very grateful for the invitation to Yarmonics Festival in Great Yarmouth. I offered a talk about the INTIMAL system, as a technology to listen to what I have called "Sonic Migrations". The festival is a gathering creating sense of place at Great Yarmouth, through sound and listening.

The panel on which I talked was focused on Sound and Health and was chaired by Martin Scaiff. AM Kanngieser connected via Zoom to offer her talk. Martin's talk focused on the experience of listening activities with children and teenagers, while AM Kanngeiser on the awareness of consent for listening/recording marine creatures' sounds. I found both talks fascinating as they expressed an urgency of exploring these listenings for sustainable futures.


In my talk, I received wonderful feedback and questions such as "what would be my ideal interface", and "how do I negotiate place and presence" with Quantum listening. My ideal interface might be one that reinforces my individual and collective agency while I move with others co-present and across the distance. Regarding location, I still strive for sensing a balance, in which I remain grounded even across the distance. A technology that reminds me about the practice and reinforces the multiple possibilities of being that Pauline Oliveros invited us to explore. Still practising, and listening in the practice.


Thanks again for such a wonderful event!
