Sound installation prototypes for enhancing the quality of human life in public urban spaces
Dr Jordan Lacey
The soundscape approach presents a shift from traditional measurement-based approaches, towards perception-based modelling for understanding urban sound qualities. This change in practice amongst acoustics and engineering scholars creates the conditions for an interdisciplinary approach to urban soundscape design. I have previously argued - in a paper for Internoise 2019 - that this shift informs a burgeoning fourth phase of soundscape design research that bridges the arts-science divide. The emerging perception-based work of acousticians and engineers opens up a new space of dialogue with the arts where perception has long been a focus of activity. A range of sound installations and sound installation prototypes will be discussed that combine natural and technological elements, designed to create small, restorative urban spaces.
