Urban Sound Interfaces: Poetic Approaches to Media Architecture

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


This paper draws on the theories of Michel de Certeau and Gaston Bachelard to discuss how media architecture, in the form of urban sound interfaces, can help us perceive the complexity of the spaces we inhabit, by exploring the history and the narratives of the places in which we live. In this paper, three sound works are discussed in relation to the iPod, which is considered as a more private way to explore urban environments, and as a way to control the individual perception of urban spaces.
