    Abstract : This study investigates the public reading of New Testament writings in early Christian communities during the first two centuries C.E. from the perspective of the lectors who prepared and performed the readings. READ MORE

  2. 2. Unwanted wanted sounds : Perception of sounds from water structures in urban soundscapes

    Author : Maria Rådsten Ekman; Mats E Nilsson; Catherine Lavandier; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Perception; psychoacoustics; soundscape; water-sound; psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : Water structures, for example, fountains, are common design elements in urban open public spaces. Their popularity is probably explained by their visual attractiveness. Less is known about how the sounds of water struc-tures influence the urban soundscape. READ MORE

  3. 3. Designing with Urban Sound : Exploring methods for qualitative sound analysis of the built environment

    Author : Nina Hällgren; Katja Grillner; Björn Hellström; Gunnar Sandin; KTH; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Architecture; urban sound design; urban sound planning; soundscape; urban planning; artistic research; architectural research; Architectue;

    Abstract : The licentiate thesis Designing with Urban Sound explores the constitution and qualitative characteristics of urban sonic space from a design-oriented and practice-based perspective. The act of lifting forth and illuminating the interaction between architecture, the creation of sound and a sonic experience aims to examine and develop useful tools and methods for the representation, communication and analysis of the exterior sonic environment in complex architectural spaces.

    Abstract : This dissertation is about sound in context. Since sensory processing is inherently multimodal, research in sound is necessarily multidisciplinary. The present work has been guided by principles of systematicity, ecological validity, complementarity of  methods, and integration of science and art. READ MORE

  5. 5. Prediction and Optimisation of Traffic Noise. A Study on Noise Barriers and Shielded Areas

    Author : Pontus Thorsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : city canyon; absorption; city noise; insertion loss; traffic noise; soundscape; silent side; noise barrier; ground impedance;

    Abstract : The main contribution of noise levels in cities is today road traffic. The strongest source for all road vehicles is most often the tyre-road contact. This source position close to the ground is fortunate with respect to secondary noise abatement measures, such as absorbing road surfaces or noise barriers. READ MORE
