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.
