Un/Sounding the Relational City

New York University GSAS Department of Music Conference, February 28–29, 2020

Un/Sounding the Relational City is the Spring 2020 conference organized by the Music Department of New York University’s Graduate School of Arts & Science. We invite participants to ask how the sonic politics of urban space and the rhetoric of soundness provide a critical vantage into the role of sound and music, real or imagined, in organizing or disorganizing urban life.

The conference will feature a keynote address by Professor Steven Feld (Senior Scholar, School for Advanced Research), as well as paper presentations, performances, and audiovisual installations. You can find all events in our Schedule.

Our conference is free and open to the public. No registration is required, but RSVP's on our Facebook event page is highly encouraged. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at relationalcity [at] gmail [dot] com.
