Exploring sound today brings us in contact with issues of ethics, social identity, social order, and negotiation; human and computational creativity, telematics, and the virtual; predictability, unpredictability complexity, and nonlinearity; time and consciousness; indeterminacy and agency; migration and mobility; representation, cognition, and enaction; and economic development. This discussion brings together social scientists, musicologists, technologists, and artists to explore the many ways in which sound serves as a crucially important component of individual, social, political, technological, and cultural formation.
