In 2016 we had the first edition of SONOLOGIA: International Conference on Sound Studies, a transdisciplinary event attended by researchers from seventeen countries and five continents with contributions from fields of study as broad as music, sound art, anthropology, visual arts, theatre, literature, architecture, history, sociology, media studies, gender studies, among others. This second edition of the event proposes the theme I/O. An acronym which, metaphorically mobilized, provides a powerful way of addressing the diverse and problematic relations between the “I” and the “other”, as well as “inside” and “outside”.
Sonologia 2019 – I/O is organised by NuSom – Research Center on Sonology at the University of São Paulo – Brazil. This center is dedicated to the development of academic research in an interdisciplinary environment integrating disciplines oriented towards the sound studies, the critical reflection on music and sound arts, and the research in the music technology.
