As a further development derived from all the learning in Sound Matters Framework project, and other research insights, Ximena Alarcón has started her post-doctoral research project INTIMAL: Interfaces for Relational Listening, at the Department of Musicology at the University of Oslo.
In the European context of migration and diasporas, and at the intersection of sound art, music cognition, psychology and human-computer interaction, this project is developing a novel physical-virtual “embodied system” for relational listening. Through the artistic practice of telematic sonic performance this system will interconnect people’s bodily motion and voice with their memories and dreams of distant locations.
