Join exhibiting artist Hilarey Cowan in exploring the wonderful world of ASMR (Auto Sensory Meridian Response) with a focus on sounds from everyday objects as well as our own voices! Session will include an overview of the field, listening, as well as some collective exploration and sharing.

Participants are invited to have a few objects on hand and / or a short text with which to experiment with. Those interested will work in layering sounds together, to create a short ASMR soundscape / microcosm.

We will be using the free program ‘Audacity’ to edit and layer sounds. Those interested can feel free to install the program beforehand. Hope to see you there!
