The objective of this winter school is to propose, over a week, a program both theoretical & practical on listening, research and design of the sound environment. In 2019, CRESSON, research team of “Ambiances, Architectures, Urbanities” laboratory, will celebrate its forty years of existence. This is the opportunity, to return to the elements that founded this team and which, today, continue to feed researches on sound ambiances.

 “Hark! Cresson is 40” or “pay attention, listen carefully, Cresson is 40” his is the tone we want to give this year for the winter school program. We will return to the founding notions of the team and show how they have helped researchers to update ways of thinking, designing and building the living environment.

The winter school program alternates a series of conference-meetings with field work. This allows the participants to consolidate their theoretical knowledge by improving their own field practice: The methodological apparatus of the CRESSON will then be mobilized by the participants (work in small groups) with the objective to produce and show of a final production at the end of the week. (see the program and the productions of the previous years here).

The site of Villeneuve, where the National School of Architecture of Grenoble and the CRESSON are located, will be the field of experimentation of the participants. This district is an undeniable memory of the team and its early works. Since the last years, it has been the subject of a major urban renewal project that modifies and will also modify its soundscape. It is a perfect field work to combine memory and prospective.

Contents

This edition will witness CRESSON problematics evolution around the sound studies and will alternate master classes and practical field works. In details, contents proposed are shortly described below:

Introductive master class will be dedicated to CRESSON history of research and will try to show how researchers are trying to “paid attention” to sound issues: Hark! Cresson is 40.

Then, several master classes during the week will be organized on the following topics:

Sound notions and Ambiances

  • Sonic effects
  • Ambiance, Environment, Milieu and Soundscape - redifinitions
  • Ambiance in perspective / the perspective of Ambiances

From listenings and investigations to the project

  • Methodologies for exploring the sensory & sound experience: from the posture to the tool
  • Sound spaces in projects

Give to see and give to listen sounds

Two Finnish researchers, Heikki Uimonen (Philosopher, Professor, University of Arts, Helsinki) and Meri Kytö, (Ethnomusicologist, Researcher, University of Tampere, Faculty of Communication Sciences) will be our guests of honor. Witnesses for the whole week, they will also offering their look on 40 years of research on sonic ambiances.
