Extinction Calls is a sound installation that calls for listening as a way of reconnecting with the environment. Promoting sound encounters with extinct and critically endangered bird species, this creation is a proposal to recover the enchantment of bird communication. It premiered at MAAT (Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology), in Lisbon, on June 10th, and can be heard until January 2021.
The project was commissioned to the artist Cláudia Martinho, who has also been a member of the AUDIRE research team since April 2020. Architect, PhD in Sonic Arts from the University of London, she works at CECS in the field of sound studies, sound culture and acoustic aesthetics. She is also interested in creative sound practices, sound art, acoustic environments, soundwalking and psychoacoustics.
