Mediated by a demanding visual attention economy, do we inherently limit our ability for the process and actions of consciousness evolution?
In this research
publication, Daniela Gentile probes critical reflections on conscious listening to explore the deeper aspects of one’s being. In order to build an ethically healthy society, she introduces the educational value of listening practices, especially for children, outlining observations of the shape of the circle and its meanings, the dynamics of collective listening experiences and proposes the initial groundwork towards fostering the Ecology of Listening as an educational curriculum to be integrated into the school system.

This short film features ‘The Cost of Entry is a Heartbeat’ by Salima Punjani inspired by the current global pandemic and curiosity about the process of resocialization that will follow it.
The film guides us on a journey exploring Punjani’s work at the Spatial Sound Institute, that invited people to take part in a ritual of collective rest using heartbeat data as the core connecting element combined with sounds of Budapest’s thermal baths. It is an exploration of resocialization, and what it means to come together again.

Led by four European partner institutions: Pedra Angular in Portugal, Fundación Santa María de Albarracín in Spain, 4DSOUND Technologies in The Netherlands and the Spatial Sound Institute in Hungary - the SONOTOMIA project unfolds through artist residencies in selected sites of study to examine
how sound can convey the characteristics of shared cultural heritage.
With over a hundred curated titles in our collection, The Spatial Sound Institute’s open-access library is an ongoing outreach initiative that recognizes the need for a wider circulation of educational and pedagogical resources in sound and cultural research for the benefit of artists, academics and learners everywhere.
