Acoustic Ecology in the Digital Era

Tutkimustuotos: Artikkeli kirjassa/konferenssijulkaisussaConference contributionProfessional


Since the early 1980s microprocessors and digital technology have penetrated our environment and everyday life in various utensils, devices and equipment. Among other, more obvious effects to culture and society, digitalization has changed the soundscape almost everywhere in the world.
In this paper I’m reflecting on sonic experiences, both personal and shared, asking what kind of strategies could be useful in trying to observe, analyze, understand and perhaps also to improve our sonic environment in the digital era. Are the arguments used in fighting against noise pollution valid when dealing with synthetic sounds? How should acoustic balance in the environment be defined in the digital age? Scientists, scholars and artists working with sound should share and discuss their views on ecology and aesthetics of the digitalized soundscape in order to challenge designers to improve the sonic dimension of our collective environment.
