European Acoustic Heritage


This is a book about European acoustic heritage. The authors and editors are proposing multiple ways to define, describe, conceptualise, document and represent acoustic heritage of various sound cultures in Europe. The writers are sharing knowledge on major research projects and methodological tools developed among the different disciplines, such as architecture and soundscape studies. They are bringing forth the archival practices in preserving acoustic heritage and how environmental sounds have been utilised in different research and art projects. In addition the book will provide a full description of the online tools that have been developed with the aim of managing and preserving contemporary acoustic heritage in Europe, including a "good practices guide" for any individual, collective or institution interested in participating in the European Acoustic Heritage project. Above all, with this book the authors are hoping to make European sonic environments audible for listeners attracted by the cultural heritage of the continent in different times, places and contexts. The project European Acoustic Heritage is coordinated by Axencia Galega das Industrias Culturais (AGADIC) and elaborated on by Tampere University of Applied Sciences (Tampereen ammattikorkeakoulu, TAMK), The Centre for Research on Sonic Space & Urban Environment (Centre de Recherche sur l'Espace Sonore et l'environnement urbain de l'Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de Grenoble, CRESSON - ENSAG), Phonogrammarchiv, the Austrian Audiovisual Research Archive (Phonogrammarchiv, the Austrian Academy of Sciences PHA-ÖAW ), the multidisciplinary collective ( and the Isle of San Simón Foundation (Fundación Illa de San Simón).
