Bani Haykal will present a series of collaborations over June and July using one of the NTU CCA Singapore studios as a base. Faculty of Listening is a means of thinking and experiencing music through non-musical lenses.
Faculty of Listening investigates “places as instruments” inspired by Didier Faustino’s public lecture at the BRIDGE THE GAP? 11 conference at NTU CCA Singapore where he says “architecture is not innocent, it is political”, and also by Marc Auge’s concept of non-places (Non-Places: Introduction to an Anthropology of Supermodernity, 1995). Haykal will present a series of lab sessions and performances using NTU CCA Singapore as a base, offering bikes for hire for visitors to take sound recordings around Gillman Barracks as part of his examination of music in relation to urban spaces.
This special project is supported by a National Arts Council grant.
