Sound in Social Life


Considers sonic environments as socially cultivated and sound production (recording, processing, mixing) and listening as cultural practices, shaped by acoustic space. Includes study of music, recorded soundscapes (films, games, installations, field recordings), built and ecological environments (rainforests, cities, institutions), and the history and use of sound technology (sound production, reproduction, reception, acoustic materials).
