Not only it takes you on a tour of experimentation and understanding the fundamentals of sound and our relation to it, but it also gives a vocabulary.

Huui Park: “During this module of listening…my eyes finally got the rest it needed. With our world overflowing with visual stimuli, it was about time that we relied on our other senses. It took a while to surrender to the sounds around me but once I let go and became one with the vibrations around me, I was able to just be; by being, I was one with my surroundings: the space itself.
