Michael Fowler’s research interests centre on the intersection between electro-acoustic music, architecture and landscape architecture. By utilising Barry Blesser’s notion of ‘aural architecture’ as an interrogative lens, Fowler has explored a number of theoretical, analytical and creative projects that locate exemplars of auditory design through inherent deep-level structural conditions. His investigations are interdisciplinary and subsequently utilise diverse methodologies drawn from soundscape studies, architectural modeling, semiotics, music theory and information science. Projects have included sound installations and performances in China, Japan, Australia, Canada, Mexico and Germany. His current research project, Designing soundscape architectures for urban environments is an investigation into the connection between qualities of soundsape and landscape within the traditional Japanese garden as a design paradigm for the future built environment
