The Sounding City Summer School is offered in partnership with Struer Sound Art Lab, and Struer City of Sounds.
Both partner-organisations are part of the Struer municipal strategies for enhancing sound environments and sound art as part of city planning and development, and both organisations supported by cultural institutions in Struer (including the local art council, specialized in sound art) and by Sound Hub DK and Bang & Olufsen.
The summer school will additionally introduce to participatory audience engagement and how public space can be a space for democratizing processes.
The focus of the Sounding city - Sonic interventions and storytelling for liveable urban spaces course from Aarhus University will be on how residents in urban quarters and urban wilding environments may interact with and through soundscapes and sonic interventions, and how the summer school participants may bring the understanding of these audiences / users / residents into the conceptualizing, development and production of digital and analogue sound pieces and stories for urban development and everyday urban life.
The purpose of the internationalisation electives is to provide students with the opportunity to use a foreign language in an academic setting, and to work with an academic theme within the humanities.
The purpose is also to teach the students to operate in a cross-disciplinary teaching context, thereby gaining a cross-disciplinary perspective on their own subject area.
The course contributes to the international dimension of the degree programme and improves the students’ understanding of the academic profile of their degree programme in relation to the humanities as a whole.
- Topics covered in the summer school includes sound studies, soundscapes, sound production; urban studies; urban multispecies environments, and critical perspectives on urban development and citizen engagement; methods of design thinking and making for prototyping sonic storytelling for urban environments and citizen engagement will be deployed.
