Public forum: Sensory Art
Music and sound can elicit a multitude of emotional and physical responses. But how can composers and sound designers manipulate the audience’s senses beyond the sense of hearing? And what are the artistic and scientific implications of such compositions?
On 5 July, at a free public forum on Sensory Art organised by West Kowloon, award-winning experimental sound designer and composer Darrin Verhagen, senior Sound Design lecturer at the RMIT University (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology), shares his understanding of how sound interacts with other senses, and how composers and sound designers play a manipulative role in shaping perceptual and emotional responses to multisensory artworks.
