Adrian Newton BU Professor of Conservation Ecology
Ambrose Seddon BU Senior Lecturer in Creative Technology
David Rogers co-director electricbackroom STUDIO
The event will include sound art installations, a talk ‘The Science and Practice of Ecoacoustics and ‘Live’ and pre-recorded sound works from a number of invited sound artists.
Exploring the impact of environmental change on Dorset ecosystems through sound and especially the possibilities of non-linear change (tipping points) driven by feedbacks and chaos. Focusing on ecoacoustics, an emerging interdisciplinary field that explores the sounds made by species in human-modified and pristine environments.
[Ecoacoustics is an interdisciplinary science that investigates natural and anthropogenic sounds and their relationship with the environment over a wide range of study scales, both spatial and temporal, including populations, communities, and landscapes].

sound art diffused on a multi-speaker array.
1-3pm Wireless headphone Installation by Adrian Newton in the canteen:
sound art broadcast over wireless headphone system.
