Participatory Designing with Sound

Descripción del proyecto

Métodos participativos para el diseño basado en el sonido

Los dispositivos de audio actuales tienen un efecto negativo sobre nuestra calidad de vida cotidiana. Por lo tanto, el diseño de sonido requiere una comprensión más participativa de su papel y su lugar en entornos donde coexisten personas y tecnología. Con todo, se carece de métodos y herramientas sistemáticos de diseño que ayuden en este sentido a los equipos de diseño en el campo del diseño industrial. Para abordar este problema, el objetivo del proyecto PaDS, financiado con fondos europeos, es introducir métodos participativos en el diseño de sonido para favorecer que partes interesadas no especializadas participen en el proceso de diseño junto con diseñadores de sonido especializados. Por lo tanto, desarrollará métodos y herramientas para ayudar a los diseñadores y otros agentes a crear diseños basados en el sonido de forma colaborativa. Los resultados mejorarán el conocimiento sobre los métodos de diseño basados en el sonido.

Objetivo

Today’s sonic displays play a significant role in threatening the quality of our everyday lives, personal and professional.
Consequently, the interest to design sound is shifting from crafting the sound towards collaboratively understanding the role of
sound and its position in complex environments, such as healthcare and autonomous driving, in which humans and technology
must co-exist. Accordingly, the design process requires more inclusive, human-centered and technology-driven approaches to
design sonic experiences. Yet the field of industrial design lacks systematic design methods and tools to empower design teams
when they collaboratively express creativity through sound and discover sound-driven engineering solutions. Thus, with the PaDS
(Participatory Designing with Sound) project, I aim at advancing the knowledge on sound-driven design thinking in which sonic
communication (speaking about sound and experiences, imagining and representing them) is especially required within multistakeholder design teams that consist of expert (sound) designers as well as non-experts (e.g. users, manufacturers, policy makers).
The main goal of PaDS is opening sound design practices to participatory approaches, in which stakeholders are involved in the
design process as partners. The core of this project is the development of methods and representational tools to empower designers
and other stakeholders to collaboratively conceptualise, express, and communicate sound-driven designs. To reach its goal, the
PaDS project is based on a mixture of interdisciplinary approaches, including sonic interaction design, design cognition studies, and
experimental psychology: Applied research and contextual inquiry of sound issues in complex, socio-technological environments provide relevant case studies of collaborative sound design-thinking, that is investigated through protocol analysis and perceptual experiments.
