How Powerful Is Hearing?

Whether as a way to treat mental illness, achieve top performance in sports, or for propaganda purposes, music is used in many different ways and not always according to artists’ intentions. What do we experience when we listen to music? What effect does music have on us and our social encounters? We will discuss these and further questions with the following speakers:

Helmut Oehring, composer, author, and director

PD Dr. Daniela Sammler, research group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig

Prof. Dr. Dörte Schmidt, professor of Musicology at the Berlin University of the Arts and member of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities

Moderator: Katja Weber, radioeins/rbb

Concert: Compositions by Helmut Oehring. Musicians: Antje Thierbach (oboe, bass oboe, voice) and Clemens Hund-Göschel (prepared piano, voice)
