Lecture Series: Into the City, into the Territory

Soundscape and Urban Territory
Two techniques of description and one model of representation

The architect and geographer Pascal Amphoux researches since many years on the soundscape of the urban realm. Starting with accoustic samples, taken from a repertoir of sound recordings in urban public space, the lecture will introduce his methodological approach, pointing out its richness in theory and practice. Amphoux will speak about one representation model, the so-called EPM Modell » Environnement – Environment  Milieu – Milieu  Paysage – Landscape », and two tools of sonic description of territory and urban landscape (the sonic effect, the qualitative criteria)

In the tension between those three auditive perspectives (better : modes of listening ?), it will be explained how the techniques operate as tools of conception, and how they allow to create an operative space between an analytical and a projective approach.
