Abstract/Description

This paper presents an investigation into how sound
can be used to create a sense of place (that is, the sense
of being in that particular place). In the study, people
were asked to speak aloud and tell us what they could
hear. The analysis of these concurrent verbalizations is a
particular focus of this work. We also demonstrate the
usefulness of this data and offer a novel interpretation
based on the work of the phenomenologist Martin
Heidegger.
