How cities communicate, part 1: soundscapes and sonic identities

Thursday, 30 November 2017 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm

“Noise is everywhere. We live with it, inside and outside our homes. It defines contemporary urban life, the world over”. That's research fellow in Architecture and Design at RMIT University, Jordan Lacey. He's a specialist in the ways that city soundscapes function as communication and can be used to promote community health and wellbeing. This week on CMD, Jordan talks about his work on 'sonic identities' and what's been called the urban 'soundmark' (like a landmark but related to sound).

 

 

 

 

Thursday 6:00pm to 6:30pm
This show casts a critical eye on the myriad ways in which we communicate with each other in our increasingly interconnected, multi-media platform world. Each week we mix down the who, the what, the where, and the how of particular communication events, messages, trends and technologies, and then consider: what impacts and what consequences?
