What does religion in the United States sound like? How do we understand American religious pluralism differently when we begin by listening for it? These questions animate the American Religious Sounds Project (ARSP) which offers new resources for documenting and interpreting the diversity of American religious life by attending to its varied sonic cultures. This panel presents some of the materials archived on the ARSP website and discusses the work of the ARSP’s Community Engagement Committee, which is planning multiple exhibits about religious sound, emphasizing the relationships between sound and space, community, experience, and materiality. In planning these exhibits, the committee is developing a framework for group listening practices with multiple experiential, audio-centric installations. Our exhibits will utilize sound design to explore communities and themes that have emerged in the ARSP’s work so far, and to listen for threads and conversations between them, thus presenting sounds in a manner that is inherently relational, rather than comparative. We also discuss how the ARSP encourages the redistribution of knowledge and authority in its work with communities through listening and recording workshops.
