Listening to Oikos
This contribution discusses how a sense of home is established through the sounds we hear and make, day after day. Relationships are drawn between the Covid-19 semi-lockdowns and regulations, the work of Soundtrackcity, and the work of sound artist Elise ’t Hart. This is followed by a listen—as told during an online meeting of Walk Listen Create—into the process of developing the idea for this do-it-yourself home listening guide. The piece concludes with statements made by the individual contributors in response to the question of how listening might contribute to a (unique) relationship to home.
