Format/Keynote speakers

Stream 2: Urban sounds, identity and sense of place, keynote speaker Brandon Labelle
Stream 3: Sound art as public art, keynote speaker Salome Voegelin

Often acoustic space is ignored in the construction of a public space, yet the negative impact this has does not seem to get many complaints. People rarely require more quality of the sonic world, because the average consumer does not have the necessary references to change this state of affairs. We know that the prevalence of noise or sounds that do not convey any social significance and are a disturbance of the quality of life, reduces the ability to identify with the place we inhabit. It is therefore urgent to think about the acoustical problems societies are facing today and integrate that thinking in urban planning, architecture and management of public space, because the idea we have of ourselves, our personal awareness and the relationships we build in the external world, are inextricably linked to a space. We all exist somewhere. And personal identity also relates to this.

Call for papers – main topics

– Sound, place and identity
– Urban planning and architecture
– Policies for noise control
– Urban soundscapes
– Sound and sense of place

Call for audio works

We invite artists to show sound pieces approaching the subject of “Sound and Sense of Place”. We are interested in artistic works that raise awareness to the urban soundscape and that reflect critically on how cities are growing and being planned around the globe.
