Welcome to participants in research project “sounding the city: critical approaches to urban soundscapes”

Since the concept of soundscape appeared in the 1970’s, the large diffusion and varied appropriations of the term has led to increasingly ambiguous and multi-layered practices. They altered progressively the original concept adding, subtracting and (re)interpreting different aspects of the lived environment. Recent critical approaches to the concept of soundscape have been developed especially in the field of urban studies, in which research on auditory experiences of space has challenged the prevailing visual assumption in architectural and urban design.

The research project “sounding the city” aims to explore, discuss and present the critical approaches of participant researchers/practitioners/artist. The project will begin in the frame of FASE in Berlin and will also take place in Stockholm and Madrid, connecting a core group (including Alex Arteaga, Ricardo Atienza, José Luis Carles, Cristina Palmese and Monica Sand) and local participants in each location. The fieldwork in the urban spaces, where this project takes place, will provide a shared base for all reflections, dialogues and presentations.

Breathturn (a nomadic journey)
Ernesto Estrella and Miako Klein
Breathturn brings Ernesto Estrella (voice, guitar) and Miako Klein (recorder, violin) into a voyage that interweaves language, sound, sense, and cultural traditions. Breath drives this journey, but breathing is not enough. A change, an interruption in the rhythm of breath is needed. As we approach the shore, or enter a new house, or look into a void that confronts us, or attend the glance that received us, an Atemwende is needed. In our drifting, the sea becomes an edge, an in-between zone. And an improvised dynamic appears in these edges.
