Caroline Claus
The Belgian Caroline Claus (1980) holds a master’s degree in sociology at the University of Ghent, and urban development and spatial planning at Erasmus University and VUB. Her work concentrates on issues of space, place and culture, the geography of lifeworlds, sonic experience and the design of urban acoustic environments. In particular she questions the urban – acoustical aspects in urban development processes in the context of urban post – industrial transformation. Acoustic ecology theory and the avant-gar- de output of independent electronic record labels provide the conceptual and methodological basis for a trans-disciplinary research on sound and soundscapes. Trough participatory soundwalks and geo-acoustic mapping, she investigates sound’s potential and of all practices sound related, for urban development processes in urban areas.
