Sonorities Symposium 2018: Techno–Human Encounters

DATE OF THE CONFERENCE: 21 April 2018

LOCATION: School of Arts, English and Languages, Queen’s University Belfast

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: 11 December 2017

Call for Papers:

This symposium aims to provoke a conversation between artists, scholars, and scientists on the conference theme: Techno–Human Encounters. What do we mean by techno– human encounters today? How do changing conceptions of technology, body, life, and environment feed into experience and mediation of sound? And what can be the role of sound in techno–human encounters, especially at times of crisis and uncertainty? Taking its cue from these questions, and drawing on music, sound, media and mobile technologies, the symposium will explore errant and co-emergent aspects of human and nonhuman interactions. We especially encourage submissions on the following themes:

musical and digital interface
machine listening and audio coding
virtual analog
improvisation and distributed agency
forms of listening, sounding and voicing
embodiment and affect
noise
field recording, global challenges, and protest
sonic critiques of the Anthropocene
sound and biopolitics

We invite contributions in the form of 20 minute talks. The symposium will be programmed as a part of the Sonorities Festival Belfast and include a keynote by Brian Kane.
