Past Event: AES SGS Research Colloquium #12: Soundscapes. A Brief History and Exploration of Concepts and Applications in Real World Projects

November 30, 2021 at 5:00 pm

Location: Zoom virtual Meeting (5pm Central European Time / Germany time zone)

Moderated by: Rafael Kassier, Tobias Goldmann

Speaker(s): Keely Siebein

Murray Schafer, the man often credited for coining the term "soundscape", has created an enormous impact in the way in which people document, think about and analyze sounds around them. He was a musician and composer, and explored soundscapes in a way that sought to catalog and record them in hopes of preserving the sounds around us.

This presentation will explore his works and his research in the World Soundscape Project. Using concepts from his seminal book, the presentation will review a number of soundscape terms, how they are directly influenced by Schafer's work and were transformed into the Soundscape Technique, that has been applied to hundreds of projects all over the world.

The presentation will explore several case studies that apply these principles to soundscape explorations of historic, natural, urban and indoor environments. The presentation explores how these principles can be integrated into a theoretical framework of architectural, urban and natural acoustic design and practice today.
