What will the future sound like? The conference organised on 16 February 2021 at 10.00 a.m. by the Mieczysław Karłowicz Philharmonic in Szczecin as part of the campaign "I hear good sounds" will present various research perspectives of acoustic ecology – in anthropology, philosophy, sociology, media studies, and in the fields of medicine – otolaryngology and neuropsychology. The online conference "Hear the Future – Challenges of Acoustic Ecology" will be held on the ZOOM platform.
Our environment and public spaces are polluted with noise. Acoustic ecology proposes solutions in this area. The conference will be an attempt at a comprehensive insight into Polish reflection on acoustic ecology. Representatives of the scientific community, activists from the third sector, employees of companies related to acoustics and medical centers will exchange their experiences as part of the nationwide symposium. Theoretical reflections will be confronted with artistic and pedagogical practices.
The event will be attended by, among others prof. Dariusz Brzostek (Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń), prof. Tomasz Misiak (University of Arts in Poznań), dr Jadwiga Zimpel (Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań), dr Anna Dąbrowska (International Center of Hearing and Speech Medincus ). Composer Anna Zaradny will deliver a speech on Sound and Architecture, Senses and Space / Illusion and Deep Listening. Composer Michał Janocha will talk about modern applications and technological solutions useful in ear training. On the other hand, musicologist Krzysztof B. Marciniak ("Glissando") will present his reflections on the Ecology of Sound. We learn to listen anew.
