OFFER DESCRIPTION

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The ARTSOUNDSCAPES project deals with sound, rock art and sacred landscapes among past hunter-gatherers and early agricultural societies around the world. The potential of sound to stimulate powerful emotions makes it a common medium for conferring places with extraordinary agency. Ethnographic and ethnohistorical sources indicate that these sites are often endowed with a sacred significance and, in many cases, they also receive special treatment, including the production of rock paintings. Despite aural experience being an integral component of the human condition and a key element in ritual, archaeology has largely been unable to study it systematically. Rock art landscapes are no exception and, although some studies have been made, they have largely been reproached for their lack of scientific rigour and subjectivity. ARTSOUNDSCAPES will fully address this weakness by investigating the perception of sound in rock art landscapes from an interdisciplinary approach reflected in its five Research Lines: archaeoacoustics; psychoacoustics; neuropsychology; ethnomusicology and the archaeology of sound and religion

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES WILL INCLUDE:

  • Work closely with the project PI, and Post Doctoral Researchers and the other teams members;
  • Collaborate with the PI and team members working in all research lines;
  • attend meetings if required by the PI
