A DICTIONARY OF SENSITIVE SOUNDS / ELIF ÖNER & EVRIM KAVCAR
A DICTIONARY OF SENSITIVE SOUNDS is a participatory art project that traces the subjective, social and cultural layers of sound, carried out collaboratively by Elif Öner and Evrim Kavcar since February 2019. Its aim is to enhance practices of listening and remembering sounds. The process of adding a new description is therefore twofold: We recall a particular moment, a particular gesture or an experience that results in or involves a particular sound. As sounds accumulate, a fraction of the collective memory becomes apparent. Both similarities and differences are revealed. Does a dictionary present opportunities to listen to them? Can it invigorate both the memory and the relationship with the present? The entries that constitute A Dictionary of Sensitive Sounds are compiled from the 20 in-person and online interviews held with guest speakers from varying fields of expertise, as part of the “Dear Reader” series.
