'Sound is a distinctive material used by many disciplines as part of their methods (e.g. interviews, field recordings). For instance, Anthropology and Cultural Geography, are using it to understand deeply the human experience, sharing Sound Art concerns. There is a growing interest in how to collect, archive and preserve sound material as a research source. … We propose the creation of a framework to expand the perspective of use, management and re-use of sound material that support UK and International researchers. Bringing expertise from different disciplines, the framework will create a rich approach, including creative options for sound interfaces and interactive practice, together with ethical and technical standards, expanding the scope and the impact that sound material has in research across disciplines.'
