Un/Sounding the Relational City is the Spring 2020 conference organized by
the Music Department of New York University’s Graduate School of Arts &
Science. We invite participants to ask how the sonic politics of urban
space and the rhetoric of soundness provide a critical vantage into the
role of sound and music, real or imagined, in organizing or disorganizing
urban life. The conference will feature programming in the form of
traditional academic paper presentations as well as live performances and
audiovisual work.
