Claudia Ferretti Isonde
I am Claudia Ferretti Isonde, musician, sensorialist, soundartist and songwriter – Claudia Is On The Sofa. I explore soundscapes to describe the world by sounds. I stimulate myself and others who listen to my work and who collaborate with me on my artistic works, project and studies to listen, because I am deeply convinced that this attention toward perception increases the possibility of meeting the beauty of the world, thus recognizing it, spreading it and protecting it.
Eric Leonardson, a Chicago-based audio artist, serves as President of the World Listening Project, founder and President of the Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology, and President of the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology. He is Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Sound at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC).
Vijay Ramesh is an avian ecologist whose broad interests include bioacoustics and historical ecology. Specifically, he uses acoustic data to monitor biodiversity across the tropical forests of the Western Ghats. He is currently pursuing his PhD at Columbia University, where he co-founded ‘Project Dhvani’, an initiative that uses acoustics to capture vocalizing biodiversity across central India and the Western Ghats.
