Listening Room with Jonathan Hiam (018)


Listening matters for every relationship, from loved ones at home to civil discourse in community and country. This new year’s episode honors a very cool experiment in listening undertaken at the Library for the Performing Arts in New York City for six weeks at the end of 2018. Dr. Jonathan Hiam, Curator of Recorded Sound, guides us through the room in an experimental episode lit by compositions of the visionary composer and performer Arthur Russell. I think you’ll dig it.


Special thanks to Steve Knutson of Audika Records and Tom Lee of the Estate of Arthur Russell for permitting use of excerpts of these rare recordings.
