The picture below.
Imagine if you will, the innermost world of
the child, before issuing from the mother. The first sounds.
While the heart is the earliest organ
(the earliest "noise-floor"), the skin would be the first sense organ
(but why not the heart! the heart! -- too romantic, I guess --
but the ear comes a bit later, forming around the 22nd day of the embryo's development,
& does seem to share affinities with the form of the womb,
theories -- the places we can trace around the ear should be connected with meridians linked to other
organs & systems of the body -- so that this is the outset for my idea that a new kind of hearing with the whole of the body just might be-- not only possibly true to form -- but also perhaps can evolve to be so and improve sensitivity and circulation of Qi, Chi, call it what you like
regarding the phenomenology of perception from within the 18th century --
N.B. don't be frightened of, the text, is not homework, just poetic background, a statement about the nature of listening as synaethesia & proprioception -- read and find the words that resonate with your own body and mind --

The Sound versus Noise Conundrum
Shunryu Suzuki Roshi famously creates an infinitely collapsable binary (see video link) when he declares that noise is more objective and sound is a mixture. Sound which comes out of our practic is both subjective and objective. Sound in this sense is participatory. And yet, what can be said about sound about which we are unconscious, do not hear? We will perform a series of listening and feedback experiments which demonstrate how this border is constantly shifting. Sounds become noise and noise becomes sound. Sound art and noise art work in this zone of perpetual re-definition and indefinite mappings.
The Underground Scene on the Global Scale
I am not a fan of corporate news networks but let's consider this as a study in the mystery of listening and locating the sources of vibrations unknown
