An ecological approach to the expressive culture of sound communication in humans and other beings

An ecological approach to the expressive culture of sound communication in humans and other beings

29.09.2021 16:00 – 18:00

Definitions of ethnomusicology as the study of people making music will continue to serve those scholars focused on humans making music and on music making as a cultural domain. However, an ecological approach enlarges the subject to eco-ethnomusicology, or ecomusicology, a field that encompasses not only people making music but also all beings making sound. Music, in other words, is just a special case of the larger category, sound. Eco-ethnomusicologists ask what all living beings on a planet that is itself alive may share sonically with one another and what that commonality means for our collective futures.
