Stefan Maier (Machine Listening)

Stefan Maier’s 2018 dossier on machine listening for Technosphere puts the work of artists like George Lewis, Jennifer Walshe, Florian Hecker, and Maryanne Amacher into conversation with Google’s wavenet. Artist Sean Dockray, legal scholar James Parker, and curator Joel Stern talk to Stefan about these and other works along with Stefan’s own compositions which treat machine listening as a prepared instrument, ready to be detourned.

For the past 20 years, Liquid Architecture has been Australia’s leading organisation for artists working with sound and listening. LA investigates the sounds themselves, but also the ideas communicated about, and the meaning of, sound and listening.
