"Modes of Listening" is going to carry out some theoretical as well as practical research in the field of 21st century experimental music-production and -reception. Artists like Francisco López, Philip Jeck and the Staalplaat Soundsystem will provide an insight into their current work and discuss their artistic positions.

That way major theoretical concepts are put into question: Are long-serving conceptual models like producer-recipient, sender-receiver or feedback-decoupling still of relevance today? Are concepts like the acousmatic, composition, sound, ecological listening or live-electronics still applicable to capture the most advanced practices in electronic music?

Finally, after a series of theory- and practice-sessions, some basic questions like "What does it actually mean to understand music?" or "Why do we hear music at all?" are revisited together with the philosopher Matthias Vogel.
