Conference: The Sense of Sound

This conference brings together scholars of French literature, music, and history, alongside sound artists from France and the Francophone world, to explore the place of sound in sensation/making sense. Talks and roundtables are organized around a series of performances which include a concert featuring compositions of Michaël Levinas, a performance at the Park Avenue Armory of Boulez’s Répons by IRCAM’s Ensemble Intercontemporain, and the innovative production by Roland Auzet of Bertrand-Marie Koltes’s play In the Solitude of the Cotton Fields. IRCAM director Michaël Levinas, Frank Madlener, and Roland Auzet will participate in discussions around their work.

Co-organized by Sarah Kay, NYU, and François Noudelmann, Université Paris VIII.
