Today, through voice-over narration as our boundary object, we’ll discuss:
(1) What Jonathan Sterne calls the “audiovisual litany,”
(2) Michel Chion’s notions of causal listening, semantic listening, and reduced listening, and
(3) Linda Martín Alcoff’s claims about speaking for, about, and with others.
We’ll put them into play through two examples of what Chion calls “masking.”
We’ll conclude by reviewing prompt #3, “Found Sound.”
