Technology has introduced ideas of resonance, amplification, and noise into the practice of music, leading contemporary practices of experimentalism in Asia to break away from institutionalised Western notions of music. This lecture looks at the practice of noise and experimental music through the act of listening with and by technology, and the ways it incites inclusivity and community building.
