About the partner:
The Finnish partner for the European Acoustic Heritage project is TAMK (Tampere University of Applied Sciences). TAMK  is an internationally oriented multidisciplinary higher education institution in the Tampere Region offering Bachelor and Master level studies for approximately 10 000 students in seven educational fields. The merger of TAMK University of Applied Sciences and PIRAMK University of Applied sciences on the 1st of January 2010 enlarged the institution to operate in four campuses, in addition to the main campus in Tampere: Ikaalinen, Mänttä-Vilppula and Virrat.

From the 1990s onwards the School of Art and Media at TAMK has been involved in various soundscape projects, first working together with ethnomusicologists from the University of Tampere. After the forming of the association for Finnish soundscape enthusiasts in 1999, the Finnish Society for Acoustic Ecology (FSAE, a member of the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology), a close knit collaboration continued producing projects like Sata suomalaista äänimaisemaa (One Hundred Finnish Soundscapes) and Pirkanmaan äänimaisemat (Pirkanmaa soundscapes). TAMK has also been closely involved in the Acoustic Environments in Change project that continued the “Five Village Soundsccapes” of the World Soundscape Project in the 1970s.


Name of the partner:
Cresson
Website of the partner:
www.cresson.archi.fr

About the partner:

The Centre for research on sonic space & urban environment is a research laboratory reporting to France’s Architecture and Heritage Directorate (DAPA and located at the Graduate School of Architecture in Grenoble (Ensag). In 1998, in partnership with the Architectural Methodology Study Centre (Cerma) in Nantes, 
it started a mixed research unit (UMR), affiliated to France’s National Research Centre (CNRS): UMR 1563, Architectural and urban atmospheres.

Research carried out at the laboratory focuses on the perceptible environment, and architectural and urban atmospheres. Cresson advocates a qualitative approach liable to help and perhaps influence design strategies and processes. After concentrating initially on the sound space, the laboratory extended the scope of its inquiries in the 1990s to include the many dimensions of in-situ sensory perception. Our research addresses phenomena related to light, heat, smell, touch and bodily movement. Research draws on original multidisciplinary methods, at the meeting point between human and social science, between architecture and engineering science.


Name of the partner:
Phonogrammarchiv
Website of the partner:
www.phonogrammarchiv.at

About the partner:

Founded in 1899, the Phonogrammarchiv at Austrian Academy of Sciences (PHA-OAW) is Austria’s archive for original audiovisual documents created for research purposes. The Phonogrammarchiv is conceived as a multidisciplinary research institute, its staff conducting original research characterised by the interaction of technical, methodological and content-related approaches applied to audiovisual source materials.

The archive ranks among the world’s innovative institutions in the field of digital audiovisual archiving, concentrating on affordable solutions for audio and video archiving which are both uncompromising in terms of scientific exactness and technically safe. These activities are complemented by the intimate expertise in signal extraction of analogue data carriers, a knowledge fading elsewhere in an increasingly digitised environment.

In 2007, the Phonogrammarchiv was given special credit for its activities by being awarded UNESCO’s Jikji Prize, the highest international distinction “in recognition for its outstanding contribution to the preservation and accessibility of documentary heritage as a common heritage of humanity”. The archive and its staff were thus honoured alike for their work in archival science, their role in the development of digital audio and video archiving, the ongoing edition of The Complete Historical Collections as well as their international commitment in archival politics.
