Naming, Understanding, and Playing with Metaphors in Music – Day 2

UCLA PEER Lab Metaphor Symposium
lectures-symposia
Zoom

If music and sound are complex phenomena that exceed our efforts to grasp them fully, what resources do we have to make sense of them? 

Join the Practice-based Experimental Epistemology Research Lab for a two-day symposium, organized by The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music’s PEER Lab & Durham University Music Department on April 29-30, 2022. This event aims to spark conversation on how metaphorical language shapes our understanding of not only music and sound but one another and the world.
