lecture byCatharina Dyrssen

The lecture gives examples of how the interdisciplinary group Urban Sound Institute, USIT, explores possibilities to construct and shape urban space and discuss the sonic environment. This environment is understood as time-related, changing, multilayered and heterogeneous spaces, immersed with technology and culturally influenced by media such as film and television postproduction. USIT works with sound art projects and acoustic design, combining knowledge in music, architecture and acoustics to investigate how sounds can interact with built structures, places and events to form communicative, shared, relational spaces in cities.
