An evening full of space, silence & John Cage

Beyond Listening: Agency, Art and the Environment
We had a great time in Budapest, attending the "Beyond Listening: Agency, Art and the Environment", an International Symposium on Sonic Ecologies.

Moreover, he presented his installation from Venice as a soundscape composition at a concert night during the conference.
