Exploring the Perception and Identity of Place in Sound and Image

Mathew Adkins, Hali Santamas

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


In this paper the concept of place is explored as the stimulus for the creation of original works combining electronic music and photography. Although the compositions of both authors take inspiration from different facets of place there is a similarity of theoretical approach regarding the identity of the individual and their relationship to geographical situations and place. We will draw upon aspects of psychogeography, psychosonology, the theory of ‘atmosphere’ by Gernot Böhme to explore complexity of place in 21st century
