Surveillance typically echoes visions of the Pan-opticon and Big Brother’s omnipresent gaze, as if it was all (and just) about being watched, especially by those we cannot see. But what if we tried to think of surveillance through sound and music? This talk will tilt the audience’s ‘paranoid ears’, inviting them to explore surveillance and/as music, ultimately putting forward that music (as accessed and distributed in modern societies) is, to some extent, surveillance.
