Acoustic Ecologies

Ana M. Ochoa Gautier

This course explores the relationship between music, sound and the environment from a cross cultural perspective. We will explore notions such as acoustic ecology, ambient sound, soundscape and acoustemology, ecomusicology and the relation between sound, climate change, and the anthropocene. We will also address how different cultures conceive of the changing relations between sounding, media and environment and how these are linked to decolonial struggles.
