How to listen to the sonic landscape? What does it tell us about our environment, and what does that mean to us?
On September 23, Chronus Art Center (CAC) will host an Open Studio event of current Research and Creation Fellowship artist Mileece.
Starting with the artist talk, Mileece will introduce the principles of acoustic ecology, the concept of SoundWalks and Phonography and generally explore the sonic relationship between living organisms and their environment. She will lead an open discussion covering the basic wave theory, audiology, bioacoustics and what can we find out about an area simply by way of its acoustic ecology. How does the physical environment inform the acoustic environment, and help or hinder the sonic communication between biological organisms? How do the sounds we hear make us feel?
After the artist talk, Mileece will also guide the attendees on a SoundWalk through M50 and surroundings to put the theory in practice and then create a SoundMap with the artist.
About the Artist
Mileece is a sonic artist, composer, interactive ecology designer and clean-energy ambassador. She has helped pioneer the modern evolution of plant biofeedback, presenting PiP, her custom coded synths and hardware for plant bio-data sonification at an array of prestigious museums (MoMA, NYC), festivals (BHIF Festival, Bhutan), and venues (Kew Gardens, London). Her work in immersive installations, sonic design and composition, interactive sculptures, as well as original products, materials and instruments, are central to a series of highly lauded projects, including the Miracle Gro “Grow Something Greater” campaign, and her Sonic Garden installation for Sonos Studios.
As a composer and recording artist, her debut work Formations was critically acclaimed internationally, and heralded by the BBC as an “outstanding release, real musical science.” Her message of 'promoting ecology through technology and the arts’ guides her roles as Creative and Technical Director to several institutional collaborators and brands.
Currently, she is developing zero energy, network-based urban wilderness sanctuaries inside technologically augmented biodomes to help balance our modern lives with the needs and benefits of the biosphere.
