About

I have a background in biological sciences with a degree in Veterinary Medicine in ICBAS – University of Porto and a Multimedia Master in Interactive Music and Sound Design in FEUP – University of Porto. My main interests are the relationship between sound, technology, art and science. My goal is to raise aural and environmental awareness in the society, promoting environmental education through artistic practices and sound art. I developed a great passion about biology and music, that led me on a demand to find synergies between nature and sound. In 2017 enrolled in Digital Media PhD at FEUP – University of Porto under the program UT Austin | Portugal CoLab where I focus on acoustic ecology as tool for environmental awareness, studying the ocean soundscape.

Abstract
This paper presents practice-based research on ecoacoustics, ocean soundscapes and anthropogenic noise. It explores creative strategies to the introduction, experience and perception of ocean soundscapes in artistic creation. Ocean soundscapes are a crucial tool to foster an emotional affinity between people and natural environments.This research questions how to convey the experience of oceanic soundscapes and their human disruption by detailing an artistic artefact - DIS_turbation - and its integrative approach. It explores the vibrational and particlemotion component of ocean sound and defines place attachment, creative development, nature-connectedness and ecology of Effect as methods. The contributions include addressing biological processes to foster underwater noise dialogue, reveal qualities of vibroacoustic ecology, develop artistic artefacts to translate particle-motion in a more grasping way, and foster inclusion with nature.
