Nanna Hauge Kristensen
Loss, Rain and Listening as an act of intimacy
A central aspect of audio making is listening. For Nanna Hauge Kristensen, listening entails a bodily attentiveness – an attunement to the Other, it creates a space where openness and exchanges can unfold. Her audio pieces often revolve around loss and beginnings, and her work moves across anthropology, documentarism and art. In her sonic explorations of lifeworlds and atmospheres, she seeks to cultivate a deep ethnographic listening: “What attracts me – Nanna says – both as an audio maker and a listener, are the intimate, sensory, and open-ended representations of the complex world that we share.” For this masterclass, she will invite us into her practice, sharing examples of her work, and offering some reflections on listening as a creative method.
Nanna Hauge Kristensen is an audio producer and anthropologist based in Copenhagen. Her work has won several international awards, including the Third Coast International Audio Award for Best Foreign Documentary.
