Workshop 4: Soundscape and Sound Studies
Goldsmiths, University of London & Queen Mary University of London, September 2022
Led by: Prof John Drever/Prof Josh Reiss
Deadline for submission of contribution proposals: July 2022
With its inclusion of “hearing impairments and hearing aids” as factors that may “influence auditory sensation”, within the criteria of the ISO definition and conceptual framework of soundscape (BS ISO 12913-1:2014), we are charged to move beyond the fixed, universal and generalizable metric predicated on the otologically normal (BS ISO 226:2003), rather consider hearing as a spectrum, a shifting and unsteady human trait that we implicitly know from our own day to day experience. This session will explore creative strategies and methods that help us to address this challenge, including artistic approaches, supported by recent case studies and prototypes.
