Marie Koldkjær Højlund is an Assistant Professor in Sound Studies at Audio Design, Department of Communication and Culture, Aarhus University, Denmark. PhD in Audio Design with a dissertation about sound and noise in Danish Hospitals entitled “Overhearing - An Attuning Approach to Noise in Danish Hospitals” (2017).
"In the talk I wish to explore and develop this approach through my previous projects engaging a gigantic wind-mill controlling the tempo of music throughout a year in the project Nephew vs. Overheard, creating atmosphere design for new delivery rooms at Danish hospitals with nature photographer Morten Hilmer, imagining the sound world of a woman turning blind through interactive sound design for Dancer in the Dark at Aarhus Theatre and placing a range of sound installations around Denmark mixed together through audio satellites on a website throughout 2017 in the project The Overheard."
