Beskrivning av projektet
The project researches urban auditory cultures in how they are experienced, articulated and reclaimed. Special attention is paid to the concepts of listener, place, and music and to different interests manifested sonically in shared soundscapes. The project is shedding light on social, legal, economic and technological factors having an effect on the historical development of the background and foreground music industry, on construction of contemporary sonic environments, and on the use of individual meaning-making in various soundscapes and commercial environments. Research will be carried out in three different-sized and it is based on theories and methods of ethnomusicology, cultural musicology, social history and sound studies. It will have an impact on planning in the environmental administration of urban areas and on designing aesthetic quality of acoustic spaces, on individual and collective well-being, and defining urban sonic identity.
