Ecological Interference: Hybrid Soundscapes

Linda O'Keeffe

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract / Description of output

This artwork responds to the ideas raised during a time of research and recording in 2015, it explores the way in which humans adapt to technological soundscapes but perhaps ignorehow other creatures respond to new sounds in their environment. Sound and noise are subjective, they are experienced different depending on culture, however, there is little research examining how the biophony responds to the anthrophony. This work, an immersive soundscape, intermingles this constant friction between the noise of humanity and the soundscape of nature. It uses the audio andvideo recordings from these two different spaces, the human voice and the sounds of technological interference to create a human/nature hybrid soundscape.
