Dates for the Symposium
8-9 November 2013
Medway Campus, University of Kent, Kent ME4 4TZ
- How audio technologies affect our listening patterns and behaviours, and does listening to field recordings change our cultural habits?
- Why do we find certain sounds of the environment attractive or repulsive?
- How can neuroscientific theories of perception help to shed light on listening behaviours?- To what extend is listening innate?
- What do we expect certain soundscapes to sound like?
The above list is not exhaustive. The Symposium on Acoustic Ecology aims to explore these questions, emphasising the interdisciplinary nature of the subject, and exploring listening to soundscapes in scientific, musical, social and cultural contexts.
