Aural Experience, Territory, and Community

Based on the aural experience in two parishes of the municipality of Lisbon, Alvalade and Belém, we intend to draw the relationship of the communities with their neighbourhood.

Through dialogues with its inhabitants, with the sound and visual mapping of neighbourhoods, we want to understand what areas exist or are necessary for a greater participation or inclusion of urban life; what aspects of the sensitive culture have deteriorated or remain as agglutinators of social life; and what can be done, at the level of acoustic ecology, to maintain an aural experience that brings well-being and identity to the community.

With this project, whose objectives could be applied to other neighbourhoods in the city, we intend to unite an ancestral sensitive culture to the notions of time, space, community and renewed identity, in part, by the use of reproduction technologies.

The works to be developed will be included online in the website Lisbon Sound Map
