KlangRaum – RaumKlang

Auditive perception of space and material

The sound of space and materials has great potential in urban/rural development and design, architecture and the choice of materials. The city and space, and thus also the material and sound, are being condensed as a result of population growth.

The sensory impressions of city, country, space and material take place primarily visually (by seeing) and too little tactile (by touching) and auditory (by hearing). For the perception of our environment the two remote senses «seeing» and «hearing» are of great importance. These two senses play closely together. Our memory connects experienced sounds inseparably with the corresponding, experienced images.

Sound in space and material has great potential in urban/rural development and design, architecture and the choice of materials. The city and space, and thus also the material and sound, are being condensed due to population growth. The series of events is intended to sharpen the understanding of acoustic diversity and acoustic qualities of places and spaces.
