UCLA Art/Sci Center to host symposium on sound and science
Date:2/13/2009

Leading figures from a variety of disciplines will present scientific and technological research on sound and hearing and will discuss the potential applications and impact of such research in the areas of culture, politics, the environment, art and music during UCLA's "Sound + Science" symposium March 5 and 6.

Organized by the UCLA Art|Sci Center, the two-day symposium will take place in the auditorium of the California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA (CNSI) and will include presentations, film screenings, discussions and social gatherings.

The symposium emerges in response to the dominance of the visual in academia and in Western culture at large and draws from a growing body of research and critical study on the auditory dimension of experience.

Commonalities among the various approaches to sonic investigation present unique opportunities for fostering new connections across disciplines, and the resulting convergence of minds, perspectives and research will help give rise to new modalities of thought and an enhanced understanding and appreciation of the aural world around us.

Thursday, March 5

The first day of the symposium will feature presentations related to technologically mediated forms of listening from the nanoscale of cells to the macroscale of solar winds and similarly mediated modes of musical expression. The field of acoustic ecology will also be highlighted, with keynotes on animal communication, alarm calling and predator detection, as they apply to conservation biology and national security. The day will conclude with a research presentation on auditory illusions, followed by a reception.

Friday, March 6

Day Two of the symposium will focus on critical studies of sound and science, as they relate to art, philosophy, music and experience. Topics will include aural epistemology, navigational soundscapes for the blind, artistic approaches to sonification, the aesth
