Spatial Sound

Space Body Intelligence

Robert Jan Liethoff

4DSOUND and Robert Jan Liethoff developed a collaborative research into ‘Space Body Intelligence’, the ongoing dynamic process between the body, the surrounding space, and sound. The body is capable of feeling and hearing on such differentiated and sensitive levels that one could argue: the finer a listener tunes in with her or his body through direct physical awareness, the more they are able to steer and influence the sound in space as well. By working with refined spatial listening, can we activate and sharpen our auditory perception? What do our ears consider a healthy sound texture? And what influence does this have on our awareness of space, both internal and external? By working with refined spatial listening, we gain a sense of the intelligent physical self.

Liethoff explored these questions together with the audience in the form of a participative sound lecture. Liethoff’s ‘Space Body Intelligence’ was part of 4DSOUND: Circadian and 4DSOUND: Reflections From The Inner Mirror. Liethoff is a regular lecturer and research associate at the Spatial Sound Institute.
