LISTEN, my heart, to the whispers of the world is a collection of audio compositions reflecting on the soundscape of the Indian subcontinent. The works are presented in a darkened cinema hall as a 5.1 surround soundtrack—a  soundtrack with no projected images. Curators Alexis Bhagat and Laurent Rosati describe the experience of LISTEN, my heart … as one in which the “cinema screen is a window for shared dreams. Our soundscape program begins high in the Himalayas, at the sacred shrine of Muktinath, with its one hundred springs of water. From Himalayan peaks, the water of the Yamuna flows to the plains"

Michael Northam, "Mnemonic Debris: Aggregates"
Hildegard Westerkamp, "Into the Labyrinth"
Iain Armstrong, "Annapurna Pastoral: One Hundred Springs"

Preceded by a brief reception in the Block Museum lobby at 6pm.

Introduction by Alexis Bhagat of ((Audience)) and the Grand Street Arts Center in Albany, NY.

Presented by the Center for Global Culture and Communication, School of Communication, Department of Asian Languages and Cultures, Asian Studies Graduate Cluster, Screen Cultures Program, and the Department of Radio-Television-Film.
