Sound + Environment conference : 

Sound + Environment 2017 is a four day conference bringing together artists and scientists to explore the ways that sound can deepen our understanding of environments. For example, recent developments in the field of ecoacoustics are proving fruitful in assessing ecosystem change. Sound is also increasingly used to monitor built structures and to inform urban design. We can use sound for scientific and artistic exploration, to inform and expand our knowledge of environments and our relationships to the world around us. What can we learn from each other? Sound can inform a range of innovative interventions and solutions to problems. Through exploring scientific and artistic approaches together, we hope to engage with sound in order to create complementary ways of investigating, understanding, and taking action.
Sound + Environment 2017 aims to nurture meaningful collaborations which can generate new insights. The programme will feature paper sessions and panels; workshops; public performances; installations, and interventions.
Keynote speakers will include Chris Watson and Leah Barclay.
The conference will take place at the University of Hull (29 June – 2 July 2017).
The conference will see the launch of a specially commissioned surround-sound installation from Chris Watson tracing the course of the Humber River: ‘Trent Falls to Spurn Point’. A number of other sound installations and performances will be featured in collaboration with Hull UK City of Culture and the PRS New Music Biennial.
Sound + Environment 2017 is hosted by the School of Arts in collaboration with the Institute of Esturine and Coastal Studies, the Institute of Energy & Environment and the Institute of Culture, Place & Policy, at the University of Hull.
