      Micro-ecologies of sound: Elemental dialog at work

            This article aims to investigate interactions between biologic elements of human bodies and soundwaves, paying attention to both the appropriate material of theoretic research and the artistic practices of recent years. Starting from the specificity of sound perception and its difference from visual one, thus highlighting the immediacy of soundwaves and their immersive cosmic character, the author goes on with consideration of approaches which try to operate with these features of sound equalizing humans with other «objects» on the planet as subjects of sound affection. Giving soundscape practices their due, the author demonstrates their still «all too human» intention to reorder «natural» sound assemblages to the please of human ear and suggests to explore artworks which immerse «listening bodies» into technically supported interaction with sound structures on the elemental level causing their modulations and mutations.
