Urban Ambiances — صوت القاهرة

The voice/the sound of Cairo

Vincent Battesti

Work in progress…

I still have to explain better here my research on the sound/acoustic dimensions of Cairo (Egypt).
This project could bear the name of صوت القاهرة, that can be translated as “the voice” or “the sound of Cairo”.

- I will here refer to my first article written about the sounds of Cairo (in French): Sound ambiances of Cairo: To propose an anthropology of sound environments and the chapter published afterwards (in French, you can read and… listen): “The atmosphere is great”, or the evanescent relationship to soundscapes in Cairo, but this one too (in English), “The sound of society”: a method for investigating sound perception in Cairo, or this other one to be published very soon (in English): Mics in the ears: how to ask people in Cairo to talk about their sound universes (Egypt).
- Regarding conferences and lectures, all in French so far for this subfield of my researches, there was this one, interesting: “The atmosphere is great”, or the evanescent relationship to soundscapes in Cairo, and others like this one, Can we do an ethnography of sound of Cairo?, and this one a bit later: Mics in the ears: how to ask people in Cairo to talk about their sound universes (…).

While waiting for the remaining, here is a recording of Raymond Murray Schafer, known for his work on the Soundscapes, which comments on the soundscape of a Parisian street: “The sound of a woman’s heels, the echo of a wall, bells in the distance ... In ambiances and in English, a brief and playful listening lesson.”
on Arte Radio. Recording: Feb. 06, Mix: Samuel Hirsch, Dir.: Anthony Carcone.

… and I have to refer to my own broadcasted sounds on Cairo: Sounds from Egypt - with RFI.
