The Symposium on Acoustic Ecology investigates soundscapes as complex sounding systems that change in space and time, and shape our understanding of the surrounding world. Soundscapes present analytical challenges relating to perception, spatio-temporal dynamics, effects of anthropogenic sounds on ecosystems, changing acoustic environments, acoustic biodiversity and unwanted sounds. New possibilities for archiving soundscape recordings or manipulating them have emerged during the last few decades, which raised the potential for composing with associative material.
Call for Submissions – deadline 5th September, 2013
Proposals are invited for academic papers, study reports, posters, acousmatic and mixed format compositions informed by nature, sound installations and artistic contributions pertinent to the symposium theme. PhD students and early career researchers are especially encouraged to submit.
