Abstract: 200-400 words
In my thesis I explore how listening is shaped by the noise and sound reproduction machines of modernity to understand how this has influenced our environmental sonic awareness. I present a positive viewpoint of my experiences from working with sound, music and technology. From this viewpoint I introduce IMPROVe which is a concept for listening to, recording and improvising with sounds from everyday life.
