The lecture-performance will focus on the hedonic auditory body

framing digital worlds, on sound-gestures as emotional interfaces

creating adaptive environments shaped by soundscapes. Performative

samples of auditory media-art studies will try to make experienceable

bridging the gap between science and art – both having epistemological

interests. Soundbased emotional interaction will turn the idea

of modernism of social .feasibility. to a policy of intimacy – to a

homeostatic life of the hedonic body with virtualities based on

emotional partnership.
