Immersed in sound
Kursk and the phenomenology of aural experience
In this interview extract, George Home-Cook reflects on what it means to be "immersed in sound". Steering clear of the natural tendency to set hearing (distractedness) over and against listening (attentiveness), Home-Cook invites us to reconsider aural immersion in dynamic terms. He urges us to pay closer attention to the dynamics of embodied attending: immersion is "dynamic embodied attending in the world" (Arvidson 2006; emphasis original). Referring to Sound&Fury's Kursk, the interview considers the particularities of conducting a phenomenology of theatrical listening.
