Abstract
The project constructs an account of the role of aural experience and soundscape perception in outlining an epistemology of auditory experience. Using ecological models, the project proposes listening and sound-making as situated, embodied, cognitive practices, and develops an account of acoustic epistemology as a form of supra-rational knowledge, based on a model of transduction between material sound energy and the conceptual. The practice of sound-making is proposed as a prosthetic 'technology of the self', and electroacoustic mediation is discussed in terms of mimesis and re-embodiment.
