The international seminar "The Sound of the Anthropocene" focuses on how the worlds of music and performing arts can address ecological challenges. Two sessions were held in 2018. This third seminar explores how music and performing arts can be used as tools to imagine ecological transition and/or new worlds. How, by whom, and for whom does music transport us (or not) elsewhere? How can fictions and ecologies—with their ideas and practices—connect us? What kind of support do institutions and audiences (museums, theaters, etc.) now offer? Several guests—musicians and musicologists, sociologists, philosophers, historians and geographers, theater and opera practitioners, institution directors—will present and discuss their work.
