Listening Closely: A Journey to Bilateral Hearing by Arlene Romoff
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.0 MB
Overview: Imagine what it would be like not to hear a sound-no music, no friendly voices, no children’s laughter. Arlene Romoff doesn’t have to imagine how it would feel: she lived it. Although she was born with normal hearing, in her late teens it began to slip away, as if someone were lowering the volume of the world around her. Over the next twenty-five years, Arlene began a long, slow descent into deafness so profound that no hearing aid or assistive device could help. The experience was devastating.
But then Arlene opted for what she considers a miracle: She got a cochlear implant. Using electrodes threaded into the cochlea, an internal computer chip, and an external computer processor, cochlear implants bypass the damaged portion of the cochlea and stimulate the auditory nerve directly, allowing sound to reach the brain. Amazingly, she could hear again.

Listening for Democracy: Recognition, Representation, Reconciliation by Andrew Dobson
Requirements: .PDF reader, 1.9 MB
Overview: Although much prized in daily conversation, good listening has been almost completely ignored in that form of political conversation we know as democracy. This book examines the reasons why so little attention has been paid to the listening aspect of democratic conversation, explores the role that listening might play in democracy, and outlines some institutional changes that could be made to make listening more central to democratic processes.
The focus on listening amounts to a reorientation of democratic theory and practice, providing novel perspectives on enduring themes in democracy such as recognition, representation, power and legitimacy–as well as some new ones, such as silence. Eschewing the pessimism of the ‘realist’ turn in democratic theory, the book shows how attention to listening can breathe life into the democratic project and help us to realise some of its objectives.
Drawing on practical examples and multidisciplinary sources, the book shows how listening should be at the heart or representative and deliberative democracy rather than peripheral to them. It develops a notion of dialogic democracy based on structured, ‘apophatic’, listening, and meets the challenge of showing how this could be incorporated in parliamentary democracies.
What should we be listening out for? This book addresses the question of political noise and uses the idea of recognition to develop an account of politics that takes us beyond the Aristotelian speaking being towards a Deweyan notion of the ‘event’ around which publics coalesce.

Being attentive to Noise and Silence: In opposition to a Philosophy of Sound Artwork by means of Salomé Voegelin
Necessities: .PDF reader, 1.three MB
Review: Being attentive to Noise and Silence engages with the rising observe of sound artwork and the concurrent building of a discourse and concept of sound. On this unique and difficult paintings, Salomé Voegelin immerses the reader in ideas of being attentive to sound paintings and the on a regular basis acoustic surroundings, organising an aesthetics and philosophy of sound and selling the perception of a sonic sensibility.
A large number of sound works are mentioned, by means of lesser identified fresh artists and composers (for instance Curgenven, Gasson and Federer), historic figures within the box (Artaud, Feldman and Cage), and that of recent canonic artists corresponding to Janet Cardiff, Invoice Fontana, Bernard Parmegiani, and Merzbow.
Knowledgeable by means of the guidelines of Adorno, Merleau-Ponty and others, the guide objectives to come back to a critique of sound artwork from its soundings slightly than on the subject of abstracted topics and pre-existing classes. Being attentive to Noise and Silence broadens the dialogue surrounding sound artwork and opens up the sector for others to practice.
