And yet, the noises we produce reveal our way of life, and learning to master them is a necessity. The topic is by its very nature complex, as it involves sounds and noises, urban space and social activities.
Using an interdisciplinary approach, it examines a heterogeneous selection of experimentations from the domains of music, art and architecture. Significant case studies of pieces of music, public art works and scientific research in the field of urban planning are analyzed, investigating the methods that have been adopted and the aural processes that have been generated. It then uses the findings to reconstruct the underlying theories and practices and to show what might be drawn from these procedures applied to urban planning.
The overall objective is to learn to build and enrich space with sound, arguing that there is a need to reconsider architecture and urban planning beyond building, and to look to the world of the arts and other disciplines. In doing so, the book guides the reader toward a sensorial architecture, and more generally toward consciously creating environmental architecture which is sustainable and connects with art and which diffuses a culture of sound.

Aesthetics of Music: Musicological Approaches is an anthology of fourteen essays, each addressing a single Various ideas will be explored in order to answer this question, involving theoretical, epistemological and methodological arguments.
First of all, it is on the basis of ongoing research on the urban boundaries of the Greater Geneva that the modes of representation of sound perceived, captured and measured sound will be presented. In order to characterise the fields of study from a physical physical approach to acoustics and sensitive sensitive approach to sound environments point of view, different forms of representation of the sonic dimension are tested sketch, text, diagram. In a second time, by taking up to resume the thematic of the boundary, we will make three proposals to address the question of the representation of sound:.
The findings will challenge existing ideas about shared experiences across generations, about how people share sensory experiences and about the use of digital technologies in urban space.

The interdisciplinary impact extends beyond cultural, sound, and music studies to areas of psychology, human geography, environmental aesthetics, and media history and theory. At present we are still able to study people ethnographically who were born in the s and s, who therefore lived their early years without digital technologies. The moment is also ideally suited for studying generations born straight into the digital world, where there is a need to enable young and older people to maintain a many-faceted relationship with their environments.
This lecture presents the multidisciplinary soundscapes studies of the book. Soundscapes related to time, place and the everyday shape our perception of the present and the past.
Sounds can be pleasant and beautiful, pacing the day or year, annoying, boring and everything in between. The theme of transforming soundscapes combines the research essays in the publication. The essays draw from various disciplines and methodologies: media studies, anthropological field work and sensory observation, textual analysis and close reading, folkloristics, archeoacoustics and music studies. In turn, the texts gathered via a writing competition show how sounds can be listened to both analytically and aesthetically, connecting them to local, national and transnational cultures and histories pondering what sounds mean to the listeners and how they influence the soundscape they live in.
She is in charge of the management of the specialized collection of documents and its promotion, the archiving of the publications. Founder of the Research center on the sound Space Cresson in , he was a co-founder, in , of the laboratory of architectural and urban Atmospheres CNRS-MCC and of a doctoral formation on the same theme.
His first works concerned the manners to walk, the manners to live, and the social behaviours in town. He then developed interdisciplinary notions and methods of analysis in situ of the sensitive, in particular sound environment.

Finally, he led several researches on the ordinary esthetic perception and on the urban artistic actions for the Ministry of Culture. He works now on a theory of the architectural and urban atmospheres.
Her researches concern the material and immaterial shapes of urban situations, their experiences, representations and transformations. He was the Director of CRESSON for eight years and, he devoted himself to the principle of crossing physical, sensitive and social dimensions through approaches to space and architecture at the scale of the moving body.
Making the notion of ambiance and the sensitive body a central vector of work in the situated approach of contemporary environments, he proposes the study of the relationships between constructed forms, sensitive formants and formalities of social practices. Her expertise is in studying the urban sonic environment, sensory ethnography and technology relations.
Her previous publications have tackled sonic domestication, articulations of acoustic privacy, soundscapes of political protest, busking, football fans and public libraries. She holds a doctorate in architecture and is a lecturer for the CNU Section 24 spatial planning and 23 geography. Her research themes are centered on the sensory dimensions of the city, to question the transformations of urban spaces.
