Sound is never limited to a single place but penetrates bodies and space. An acoustic event always has a social dimension. Sound can be translated, communicated and collectively evaluated.

In Para-Listening, Ricarda Denzer analyzes and deepens the practice of listening through form-finding, both textually and spatially. The sound paper revolves around the understanding of learning and mediation as a sonic act, and also as a correlation of different sensory experiences.
