City of Sounds – Mediated Cities Symposium

City of Sounds

The city sounds continuously although we are not always aware of this activity. What we call ‘noise’ induces annoyance but very often we miss the subtle changes of tones and sounds that surround us, sound waves generated by every single entity in the city maze. The Transmedia Postgraduate in Arts, Media and Design of Sint-Lukas Brussels launches the ‘City of Sounds’ research project. With students, visiting artists and researchers, Boris Debackere, Steven Devleminck and Joost Fonteyne will create strategies to catalog and present these ‘sound-objects’. This symposium is the first step in a series of actions to kick off the project. Three lectures by invited noise diggers, tone architects and sound wanderers.
