Project RADICAL presents sonification research and practice as a listener-centred, transdisciplinary activity. In this chapter, authors discuss sonification from perspectives of artistic and musical practice. Particular emphasis is placed on spatial listening, embodied experience, environmental interaction, and communication, resulting in an interroga- tion of methodology, objects and foundations often assumed for sonifica- tion. The reader is invited to apply an ethnographic ear to a roundtable presentation investigating new sonic and musical practices that converge upon a reframing of sonification as engaged aesthetic activity productive of and carrying new technical and epistemic knowledge.
