Symposium – « Soundscapes & Sound Identities »


« Soundscapes & Sound Identities« 

« Soundscapes & Sound Identities » is the seventh international symposium on soundscape organized by the FKL (Forum Klanglandschaft)
The symposium is hosted by festival Portobeseno 2015.

There exists doubtlessly anACOUSTIC identity of places, even in those which, due to the increasing uniformity of the contemporary world, end up being “non-places”; acoustic identity may appear standardized, but is neverthelessPRESENT.
The term “acoustic climate” is often used in environmental physics in defining the parameters and quantitative data which characterize an acoustic environment, obviously this term inevitably hints at an idea of identity linked to its measurable aspects.
Bioacoustics and ecology deal with, among other things, the way the acoustic environment, the specific sonic utterances and hearing characteristics of living species represent the identity of a given species, and the way they co-exist and live together.

Human and social sciences (anthropology, history, sociology, ethnomusicology) on their side examine the various practices of acoustic communication that may characterize a given territory, a socialGROUP, a historical period, or even a future perspective, and here comes into play the way human being relates to other individuals and the environment, the way in which he represents his/her identity through the sounds he/she produces or listens to.
And also the sonic forms through which an individual and a collective represent themselves and which are dealt with by music andART, together with architecture and electro-acoustic engineering, inevitably imply a multi-faceted discussion of identity.
I there exists an acoustic identity it exists for somebody who perceives it as such. Speaking of identity thus means speaking of the listener and not only of what produces the sound or affects its diffusion (see the aural dimension of architecture and the ensuing sound effects). The concept of identity, and in particular of sonic identity, may be looked at as a vital dimension in the problems of co-existence and conflict between different human groups, betweenLIVING BEINGS of different species, between living beings and the natural environment, thus as a problem or a form of ecology.
What are for us the aspects that give a context an acoustic identity, or when are we able to speak of it? Are there sounds, practices, contexts particularly apt to express such an identity, and why?
The variety of the sonic forms of identityRESULT in that which only in a macroscopic, or better, macro acoustic sense may be thought of as an identity of a soundscape.
The international FKL symposium intends to offer an occasion for discussing these issues, for stimulating a reflection and dialogue within the acoustic community in the attempt to define, or to share as much as possible the basis on which we build our ideas, and confer qualities of identity to the sonic contexts in which we live or which are around us.

FKL (Forum Klanglandschaft – Forum for the soundscape) is a European association that wants to serve as a platform for contact between people from different disciplines that deal with the soundscape andACOUSTIC spaces.
The FKL was born as aRESULT of the impetus given by the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology WFAE (Vancouver, BC) was formed in 1993 based on research carried out in 70 years. The FKL is a non-profit organization, is open to all those interested in listening and sound environmental stewardship.
Every two years FKL organizes its conference in a different European city .

PORTOBESENO
Portobeseno is a cultural project founded in 2004 which works on 2.0 multimedia archives,ART projects and laboratories dealing with issues of the territory, the landscape and individual and collective memories.
The projects are based on narrative interviews, ethnographic research, didactical laboratories for schools, reflections on oral memory and on the factual knowledge of the territory, on theEXPLORATION of soundscapes and their relation to the web through the development of virtual maps, creative blogs, geoblogs, social projects for the web.
These projects are integrated in the festival “Portobeseno, a journey to historical and web sources “ which produces events (ranging from theatre to electro-acoustic concerts) and innovative multimediaINSTALLATIONS. The Portobeseno festival furthermore hosts discussions on authors rights, creative sharing, the real / virtual perception of the territory, from the discovery of a trail in the woods to net surfing.
