The "Sound Studies” Masters Specialisation: Interview with Prof. Dr. Rolf Großmann

2017-03-03 The first thing you hear in your life is a sound: the beating of your mother's heart. People only tend to notice the noise that the keys on a computer keyboard make when they buy another one that sounds different. If a mobile phone illuminates in a lecture hall, only one person will look at it; when the Android text message melody sounds, however, half of those in the lecture hall will take their phone out. Sounds play a major role in our lives, and one that is at least as big as images, but we only address them very little. The “Sound Studies” a specialisation unit in the Masters programme “Culture, Arts and Media” at the Graduate School provides an academic perspective and a study programme on the topic of sounds. Course Leader Prof. Dr. Rolf Großmann and students Jonas Kellermeyer and Jakob Wössner discuss the course in an interview.
