Noise Fields - Annual Conference - February 9, 2023 - School of Environment & Architecture, Mumbai
Noise is immanent to space, its production, modulations and mediations. Readings of varied intensities of acoustic waves as vibrating matter have largely followed conceptualisations of a right to enjoy property, both private and public. Such readings, driven by logics of property, have lent not just to the distinction between ‘sound’ and ‘noise’ as urban entities, but have also produced a field of acoustic design and governance with an ever increasing array of experts–architects, planners, engineers, lawyers, doctors–concerned with the science and policing of noise, often as nuisance, pollutant or hazard. Architectural inquiries and practices have either ignored or insulated themselves from engaging with noise in other productive ways for varied reasons: prevalence of oculocentric and orthographic methodologies for drawing space; acoustic studies that focus on transmitting signals effectively across space and muffling out noise; and predominance of spatial inquiries into “silences” informed by social theory.
