Research into the relationship between sound, listening and culture forms an integral part of our collaborative practice. We work with engineers, acousticians, planners, architects, audiologists, neuroscientists, musicians and curators on projects where sound, listening and the environment are common themes across these diverse disciplines. Both Frances and David have worked as academics within the fields of architecture, music and sound art. David is Associate Professor in Music and Sound Art at University College Falmouth.
