The emphasis is on unprocessed everyday sounds alongside projects or practices that explore their use. The conference features contributions exploring: lost everyday soundscapes; sound hunting; the sounds of the unspectacular; sound and memory; sound as text; mobile soundscapes; and the documentation of experience through sound.
