    Hello!
    I’m happy to find you. As I see there are even more people that pay attention to the acoustic environment, I even get more interested in the issue. As I’m an art student (I study “Interior Design” a.k.a. “Spatial Strategies” at the Muthesius Art Academy, Kiel, Germany) I’m discovering the meaning and the possibly formgiving influence that can have sound or soundscapes to art.
    At the moment I’m working on my B.A. exam which contents the design of a World-Expo-Pavillon (just fictional). I had to choose the country and the manner of representing it.. So I chose Italy and my idea is to make a (superficial, not scientific) analysis of the country’s soundscape and turn it into a “soundshape” – so the final result should be a landscape formed by the combination of geographical position of the high and low level sound of Italy, which creates space for a detailed exhibition of certain sound-details and themes inside, on top or between the forms of that landscape.
    Actually I found this page because I’m reading R.Murray Schafer’s “The Tuning of the World” and tried to find out some recent sources of him or about the topic.
    I hope to get more information on this page/in your publications and I’m glad to become a member of this forum.
    I would even like to get some sound-data which rely to my topic (italian soundscapes) or a hint where to find it.
    Of cause, if you are interested in my project, I can give you more information or let you see the results when I’m done (which should be after 15th of july).
    Best regards,
    Lea Mirbach
