ABSTRACT. Arguably, ‘we’ (or at least those who take hearing for granted) are attending to the world more sensitively through sound, becoming more aware of its presence and absence: becoming more bat-like. Perhaps bats have propelled into existence new sonic-relationships for humans and are encouraging us to attend more closely to the becoming sonic-world. Might they be asking us to finally listen/see/feel/note more keenly that which is right in front of us? pp. 16–22

Keywords: bats; Australian bushfires; Haraway; string figures; Anthropocene; intrusion of Gaia
