CITY OF SOUND research project

by Joost Fonteyne/Boris Debackere/Steven Devleminck + Qo2

Sound is everywhere. We experience it, not always being aware of it or it’s influence. Cities are full of sound. This project is about getting to know these sounds, discover them, catalogue them. Do we find places without sound, real silent spots? Through the work of international artists we find out how they deal with this urban, sonic environment. How they integrate it in audiovisual work, how these sounds are translated into ‘musique concrète’ or how to hunt for hidden sound. The aim is to develop an urban sound project. Making a sonic reconstruction of a city or taking people on a especially designed sonic walk in which they can discover a catalogue of urban sound.
