Det er støjen, der binder byen sammen - En analyse af Londons lydatmosfære

Studenteropgave: Speciale


This thesis creates an overview of how a subjective perception of sound in the city, participates in crating a relational space. Through a critical approach to the way we are regulating the sound of the city, this thesis seeks to make an understanding of how a qualitative research can contribute to these regulations.
Through Gernot Böhmes understandings of atmospheres and R. Murray Schafer’s soundscape, ill make an understanding of how sound is a part of place, according to Doreen Massey’s understanding of space.
With this ontological understanding of space I made interviews with people living in London, trying to understand the subjective perceptions of the urban soundscape.
The interviews are being understood through a theoretical frame, consisting of Michel De Certeau’s strategy and tactic concept’s and Brandon Labelle’s understanding of sound territories.
The thesis concludes that sound is a very complex thing, and we therefore as city planers must consider to add a qualitative research to urban sound planning.
