Listening Across Disciplines is a network project that brings together artists, musicians, scientists, technologists and social scientists as well as scholars and practitioners from the humanities, to work across disciplinary boundaries on the recently emerging focus on sound and listening.

The aim of this network is to initiate an exchange that draws together auditory research initiatives and methods from across the disciplines to advance their status and use, and to generate a space where culture and science can collide to generate new knowledge and create innovative modes of knowledge production that bring value within and between the disciplines, and ultimately to a general public.

The project has been awarded an AHRC grant and is run by Dr. Salomé Voegelin (PI), Reader in Sound Arts at the London College of Communication, UAL, and Co-I Dr. Anna Barney, Professor in Biomedical Acoustic Engineering at Southampton University.


Salomé Voegelin and Anna Barney would like to warmly invite you to engage in our monthly changing questions around listening.

Your answers will be collected by the project team, and will be vital in giving us insights into how you listen, and how you interpret what you hear.

This in turn will allow us to understand and evaluate listening in relation to knowledge, communication and how we live.
