The study field Sound researches vibrations. Sound is approached as a material, similar to how a painter uses pigments or a sculptor uses wood, metal or stone. Sound is regarded as a tactile material with complex properties, able to expand our understanding of time, space, cognition, perception and social relations.
The study field Sound offers an environment to analyze, experience, question and discuss the materiality of sound, as learning about physical properties of vibration, its ontology, and the political implications of listening. Sound regards itself as an area for experimentation and knowledge production through research and praxis-based methodologies.
