Acoucité has made sound recordings of the Festival of Lights in Lyon and the FuturFestival in Torino to establish their soundscape maps. As you will hear, they are audio recordings allowing the reproduction of the perceived sound at a listening position, with the sound changing as you move around in the streets.
Understanding the sounds of our environment
Soundscapes make us listen to the different sounds of our environment: human, transportation, nature and activities so that we understand its functions:
“Soundscape maps help people understand how a specific place or event is working. You can hear the differences between a soundscape with and without an event”, explains Bruno Vincent, CEO of Acoucité.
“It’s also a tool representing the reality of recordings and measurements and allowing us to fuel the reflection of our partners on the acoustics work throughout the MONICA project”, he concludes.
