About “Soundscapes Of Tehran”

Soundscapes of Tehran (also ‘Tehranscapes’) started as an ongoing research project (since 2016) during the translation of a number of essential articles on the subjects of Urban Planning and Sound Theory by Soheil Soheili. This project aims to capture, archive and explore the sonar qualities of the soundscapes in the city of Tehran, especially across the urban areas with population density.  It also seeks to support and reflect upon notions and past studies on urban planning and ethnomusicology. Of course, other creative purposes that would follow can also be very useful, namely for sound artists, ad people who are active for film post-production. ‘Studio A’ would be our production partner throughout the process. 

Before the soundwalk with ARUMAN, Soheil Soheili, Mohammad Famouri at Leonie Roessler’s workshop during Limited Access Festival in 2016.

Being more precise, Tehranscapes started following a field-recording workshop by  the field-recording artist and composer Leonie Roessler (NL) in January 2016 regarding the technical and artists aspects of sound-walks during the sixth edition of of ‘Limited Access’ a Festival for moving images, sound and performance both in New Media Society Tehran and Esfehan.
