Peter Speer

How Many Things Can You Hear?

In this talk I will be describing a listening/mindfulness  game that has been central to my practice for over 15 years, called  simply "How Many Things Can You Hear?"  After a brief overview of the  game and a practical exercise with it, I will demonstrate how this game  has been incorporated into my synthesis work and general artistic  practice.

Peter's Bio: I am an Asheville-based artist working primarily with paper-based collage and synthesized soundscapes. My  work investigates the quiet stillness at the center of loud, fast  things and celebrates the endlessly evolving symphony of the everyday.

Jon Claude Bieschke

Objective Assessment of Music Processing Through Hearing Aids: Predictions in Understanding Lyrical Content.

This 2022  research project spearheaded as part of the final stages of my graduate  program through the Audiology dept at ETSU is a foray into a clever  modeling experiment to answer the question:  What happens to lyric  intelligibility across different genres of music for different  configurations of hearing loss? 

Jon's Bio: Jon Claude Bieschke is associated with no.001outof001recording ltd. and  LWA (limbswanderedalone) est. 2000AD on Planet Earth. Jon Claude is  also a licensed Audiologist and member of ASHA.

Curt Cloninger

EMFAF (electro-magnetic frequency as f#&k)

We  will walk around with a small device that detects (inaudible)  electro-magnetic frequencies and translates them into (audible) audio  waves. This device will be hooked up to a small battery-powered  amplifier so we can all hear what is happening. We will point the device  at different things and listen. A brief introductory talk on analog  waveforms and process philosophy will precede the walk.

Curt's Bio: Curt  Cloninger is an artist, musician, writer, and Associate Professor of  New Media at the University of North Carolina Asheville. His art uses an  array of media combinations to undermine language as a system of  meaning in order to reveal it as an embodied force in the world. His art  work has been featured in the New York Times and at festivals and  galleries from Korea to Brazil. Exhibition and performance venues  include Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), Whitney Museum of American Art  (New York), Granoff Center for The Creative Arts (Brown University),  Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art (Chicago), Black Mountain College  Museum + Arts Center (Asheville), and the internet. His fifth and most  recent book is entitled, "Some Ways of Making Nothing: Apophatic  Apparatuses in Contemporary Art" (Punctum Books, 2021). His art, music,  and writing may be accessed at,, and
