Abstract

What can be done to raise awareness of the significance of sense- and soundscape for health, wellbeing and communication? A massive body of research is being conducted in the sound environment field today with important discoveries especially on relationship between noise and health. Outcomes of this research slowly pours up into society, raising warnings of health and environmental risks, not seldom threatening heavy economic interests and deeply rooted conventions. Some are aimed at raising the consciousness of the effects of sound on health and wellbeing and some exploring new horizons in terms of technological inventions and economical possibilities. The Sound Environment Center at Lund University has for over ten years hosted... (More)

What can be done to raise awareness of the significance of sense- and soundscape for health, wellbeing and communication? A massive body of research is being conducted in the sound environment field today with important discoveries especially on relationship between noise and health. Outcomes of this research slowly pours up into society, raising warnings of health and environmental risks, not seldom threatening heavy economic interests and deeply rooted conventions. Some are aimed at raising the consciousness of the effects of sound on health and wellbeing and some exploring new horizons in terms of technological inventions and economical possibilities. The Sound Environment Center at Lund University has for over ten years hosted interdisciplinary research promoting exchange of ideas through projects, symposiums and publications, aiming for holistic views of a fragmented field. Ranging from acoustics, noise abatement and soundscape understanding, to epidemiological mapping of health, biological effects, hearing and voice disorders, music and cognition, many facets of sound are covered. The center connects to national and international research networks and partners and has access to high tech labs at Lund university making use of eye-tracking technology, articulograph, VR-lab and recording fascilities. Current projects focuses on health and cardiovascular issues, noise, acoustics, voice production, speech intelligibility, as well as eyetracking studies of cognitve aspects of sound exposure. Results offers information to stakeholders and community in favour of development of a quiter future. Major issues are adressed at interdisciplinary symposiums like "Health & Noise", "Sound, safety & Society" etc. The preliminary response to the centre has been positive leading to deepened network collaborations and continuously evolving new research projects.
