In this lecture the sound artist Erik DeLuca will focus on his sound work as being defined by its interaction between binaries like humans and machines, nature and culture, as well as presence and absence. He will introduce his ethnography of listening, "Wolf Listeners: Acoustemological Politics and Poetics of Isle Royale National Park", and share a series of large-scale sound installations that deal with telephony, sound reproduction, amplification, and feedback of historical readymade objects of commercial sound technology.
