TEIMU (THE GARDEN OF DREAMS): AURAL AND AESTHETIC ATTRIBUTES OF JAPANESE GARDENS AS MODELS FOR SPATIAL ENVIRONMENTS

Grant number: DP0664279

Abstract

Traditional Japanese garden design has greatly influenced both 20C Western landscape designers and composers of Western art music. By investigating the aural and aesthetic attributes of five renowned Japanese gardens, RMIT and University of Melbourne researchers will seek out spatial sound designs that could enhance sound quality in urban environments and provide a pioneering approach to architectural modeling and the built environment. This project has long-term cross-disciplinary implications. The results and methods contained in this project may assist in innovative sound design for new media applications, better listening environments in urban areas, unique approaches for data modeling, ..
