A Glossary of Feelings Expressed by Sound by Martin Kersels (Participatory Sound Project)

A Glossary of Feelings Expressed by Sound, by Martin Kersels (Participatory Sound Project)

Featuring the artist’s sound creations and additional contributions from the public, Martin Kersels’ “Glossary of Feelings Expressed by Sound” expresses seven different feelings aurally. Created using the body, quotidian objects, and digital augmentation, this project builds on Kersels’ interest in the audio of the everyday. As social distancing and digital communication challenge our ability to read visual cues, Kersels’ Glossary clues us into the ways our ears enable comprehension and decode the feelings of others.
