The main objective of the project is to develop creative methods specific to the transformation of existing soundscapes based on environmental variables and climate change scenarios, and to explore how participatory engagement with everyday sounds can generate new insights into auditory perception of the environment. The resulting sounds will offer reimagined and speculative versions of soundscapes as a way to navigate and experience plausible future states of human and more-than-human life.
Following this individual grant program, I plan to continue my research and creative work in sound from an interdisciplinary perspective, and further explore the new directions that my current project is taking towards other fields e.g., environmental science. I am interested in applying the knowledge produced in this project in ways that intersect artistic expression with technology, ecology and society.
