The B-AIR network includes various institutions, from national radio broadcasters to research institutes, universities, NGOs, children's hospitals and retirement homes. More than 100 artists, researchers, media professionals, experts in software/hardware and impact analysis connect with target audiences to address the predominantly visual-centric communication modalities of the modern media horizon and raise the subject of audio sensibility from an early age.
They illuminate the impact of the audio pathway (sound, voice, words, music) on cognitive, emotional and personal development, as well as during illness and rehabilitation. Prototypes of new models and production standards for babies, young children, vulnerable groups and the elderly are presented in highly elevated contemporary artistic settings, as well as in environments where the subjects of art and sound can be considered as a possible developmental and transformative factor. On the one hand, the consortia explore different sonic environments and auditoriums (urban space, hospitals, retirement homes), on the other hand, we aim to address different audiences, especially those that are usually neglected (babies, young children, vulnerable groups, the elderly). Apart from a purely intuitive artistic approach, the aim of the consortia is to stimulate reflection on the role, sensory and semantic impact of sound in our lives by incorporating scientific research and presenting it in slow journalistic production. , maintaining the active flow of in-depth information among the above-mentioned participants, bringing long-lasting and well-presented documentation of the case and developing tools to evaluate their effectiveness.
