Adventures in Sound

A research expedition to designers, sound artists and researchers
#FFC48E;

How do designers, sound artists and researchers speak about sound in the recently established research field of sound studies? What are the most urgent research questions and issues? What are the different methods they apply to research on or to design and work artistically with sound? And what are their findings - in research and in the arts?

 

Concept

What exactly do you hear in this very moment? How are those sounds you hear right now technically generated and post-produced, how are they aesthetically conceptualized and how culturally dependant are they really? How is your ability to hear  intertwined with all the other senses and their cultural, biographical and technological construction over time? And how is listening and sounding a deeply social activity – constructing our way of living together in cities as well as in apartment houses? In three hour-long radio features researchers, designers and artists from the field of sound studies present their approaches and evaluations of how sound is produced, perceived and appropriated – in the 21st century as well as in cultural history.
