The audial dimension of everyday life. On the usefulness of studying the audiosphere of domestic space
The aim of this article is to briefly present the research project of examining the audial dimension of everyday life. The research would remain within the field of audio anthropology — a trend in anthropology which constitutes an attempt to understand the human individual on the basis of the sounds they are surrounded with and which they produce themselves. The research of the outer space of sound is being carried out all around the world, including Poland. The author of the article suggests completing the research with the examination of the internal, domestic and private space. The proposed study would concern the manner of perception and valorization of the space which allow to answer the question of how a person perceives and assesses the domestic space through the use of the sound. The audio research of domestic space enables achieving cognitive, academic and social objectives such as protection of significant sounds of cultural importance.
