We will visit the places previously selected and we will record a short track with the sounds of that place to make a sound map of Avilés.
Some studies have proved that the perception of the environment is intersensory. However, the studies have been conducted without taking into account the influence of other sensorial information perceived in the environment. With the aim of analysing the incidence of the audio-visual interactions in the soundscape and how they affect the global assessment of the urban contexts, we will make an experimental study on a sample of more or less 30 subjects, our class. The visual and auditory stimuli representing several urban environments will be presented individually and combined. We will realise that the global evaluation of urban environments depends on the audio-visual interactions. We are conditioned by ambient sound when we walk through our city.
Once compiled all your tracks we will make a video including not only the images but also the sounds of your favourite, most beautiful and ugliest places in Aviles.
Watching the video we will be able to make an analysis on how the sounds of the city affect our way of living it.
We can´t create our own real map, so we will make the video, but here you can see a really interesting example created at Laboral.
