Sonorous Cities: Towards a Sonic Urbanism

Project description

Time to listen to your city

How can the city be understood differently through engaging with sound? To answer this question, the EU-funded SONCITIES project gathers sound theorists and artists, urban sociologists, architects and designers to develop a new framework of sonic urbanism that can address the neglect of sound in architecture and urban design. The first step will be to conduct ethnographic research with urban residents and communities to learn how people experience and shape urban soundscapes. The next step is to form a mobile urban sound laboratory that will travel to different cities to collaborate with local architects and designers in generating new sonic modes of urban analysis. Finally, the project will develop new sonic modes of urban design in the context of design weeks, public exhibits and creative interventions in cities.
