The pandemic has forced the closure of many entertainment venues during the lockdown. Cities have become quieter spaces and people have been cut off from many familiar sounds, changing our interactions with the outside world. In this webinar chaired by Nick Luscombe, Yuri Suzuki will investigate the relationship between humans and sound, and he will be exploring how our relationship to sound since the Covid-19 pandemic began. Gemma Curtin will talk about the Electronic – From Kraftwerk to The Chemical Brothers exhibition, and how it is one of the few opportunities to experience the atmosphere and sound of live music presentation during these times.
