Approaching Relational Listening

"Relational listening provides a systemic framework through which artists and other concerned practitioners can explore the conditions of their listening, specifically in the context of the desire to transmit those listenings", writes Lawrence English in an essay entitled Relational Listening: The Politics of Perception. He describes relational listening as a creative process intended to make one's listening audible to an audience.

Press quotes

These are the most 'natural' kind of environmental recordings imaginable.
HEADPHONE COMMUTE, December 2016

Those familiar with Luc Ferrari's work will no doubt enjoy Lawrence English's torch-bearing.
EXCLAIM!, October 2016

Don't know the field recording genre? Start with this! Blessed!
DARK ENTRIES, October 2016

Everything slots into place to create a perfect whole.
ADVERSE EFFECT, September 2016

Lawrence English is faithful to Luc Ferrari's spirit, which would have endorsed Alain Robbe-Grillet's aspiration for his readers to participate in "the invention of the work - and the world".
THE WIRE, September 2016

Cela suffit à signer la qualité d'un artiste qui, même dans un genre ultra-balisé, parvient à se singulariser.
ETHERREAL, August 2016

From inside, leaking out, the scrape of metal on metal, the clinking of cups, the owner puttering affably like a motor, and a curious, crackling hiss.
TINY MIX TAPES, July 2016

Un album qui pose des questions, à chacun d'y trouver sa réponse.
SILENCE AND SOUND, June 2016

An excellent piece of music.
VITAL WEEKLY, June 2016
