Our mission focuses on the spreading of an “environmental conscience” by the discovery of marine and terrestrial soundscapes, through a mixture of science and art. Soundscapes are powerful and innovative means in scientific investigations devoted to environmental conservation.
Main goals of eConscience – Art of Soundscape are:
a) To promote the development of a wider ecological conscience and environmental awareness by spreading knowledge on soundscapes.
To propose and take part in actions aiming at the conservation and restoration of the marine and terrestrial ecosystems.
The term Soundscape or Sound Landscape was first used in 1967 by Michael Southwort, a professor of environmental planning, who uses this term referring to the acoustic properties of cities that help people in space perception and relationship with town activities. Since then, the term is used in various disciplines, ranging from music composition to urban acoustics, passing through ecology.
“eConscience – Art of Soundscape” is a no-profit association born in early 2017 and based in Italy.
A group of young researchers in the fields of bio/eco-acoustics and a sound designer with a strong interest in soundscape and field recording, with a view to their scientific and artistic exploration…
…a passion born by listening to nature sounds and wearing headphones becomes a driving force to promote actions for raising awareness on the needs for ecological conservation… the fusion of science and art aims to the spreading of a wider ecological conscience by spreading knowledge on soundscapes.
