Invisible Places | Sounding Cities Symposium

poster invisible placesI am working on the international scientific committee for Invisible Places | Sounding Cities, a symposium on sound, urbanism, and sense of place happening 18–20 July, 2014 in Viseu, Portugal. The call for submissions was announced January 13.

Three sections will be featured with a keynote by Jean-Paul Thibaud from CRNS at CRESSON for the section on Architecture and Urban Planning. Keynote speaker Brandon Labelle heads the section on Urban Sounds, Identity and Sense of Place, and Salomé Voegelin is our keynote speaker for Sound Art As Public Art. The symposium enjoys the support of a large arts festival called Jardins Efémeros in association with several other institutions and organizations, including the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology. The conference includes numerous soundwalks, concerts—including my own solo performance—sound installations, and a solo concert and workshop by Francisco López.
