SONIC ECOLOGY

Digital Conference

4-6.12.2020

Asia Society Hong Kong Center

The SONIC ECOLOGY DIGITAL CONFERENCE took place 4-6 December 2020 at Asia Society Hong Kong Center. Speakers and workshop leaders engaged with an international online audience from a wide variety of interdisciplinary and theoretical perspectives, relating to the conference themes of sustainability and design, arts and environmental activism, as well as examining humanity's increasing conflict with the natural world.

SONIC ECOLOGY, the first sound-based platform advocating environmental awareness and engagement in Hong Kong, brings together composers, sound artists, film makers, scientists and researchers under the same roof. Structured around performances, workshops and a conference, SONIC ECOLOGY provides a platform to reflect on new ways the arts can respond to pressing issues of our time, including climate change, global warming and sustainable development.
