SONATAS – Listening to the Sounds of NATure to understAnd environmental changeS

Abstract : SONATAS is a multidisciplinary research project aiming at grasping (i) how local communities and people perceive their landscapes and ecosystems in a context of strong mutations of societies and their environment ; and (ii) how they think about adaptation to environmental changes through their immediate sound environments, or soundscapes. The project is located in the Pima County (Arizona – USA) which is confronted to multiples sociological and environmental changes including climate warming, water scarcity or uncontrolled urbanization. Moreover, it is locally facing an important mine project with potentially strong environmental consequences. Sonatas aims to understand through sounds experiences and perceptions how the environment is locally conceived by local communities and whether it is seen as changing or immuable. Our objective is to explore how different types of ecological knowledge coexist within those communities in the context of major mutations and how people could collaborate together to face those changes.
