THE SONIC TURN: TOWARD A SOUNDING SONIC MATERIALISM
Keywords: Sonic Materialism, Sound Studies, listening, auditory ontoepistemology, New Materialism, relationalism, human and nonhuman agents
Since the turn of the millennium, philosophy has been enriched with a new “-ism”: New Materialism. However, as usual in most philosophical movements, this New Materialism is grounded in a visual paradigm and the existence of (static) objects. In order to further develop the ideas that contribute to a Sonic Materialism such as the ones conceptualized by – among others – Christoph Cox and Salomé Voegelin, I will present an Auditory Ontoepistemology as an alternative way to encounter the world.
