summary This paper explores the intangible aspects of space through a series of soundmappings that took place in Edinburgh and Athens between 2006-08. One of our main conclusions is that sound is a rich and provocative tool for exploring space, due to the fact that it reveals qualities and information that a visual representation wouldn’t had been able to. A significant remark we made is that the exploration of space through sound does not predetermine the findings; we did not pose questions about pre-decided aspects of the places under investigation. On the contrary, within each different environment, the study of sound brought out different kinds of information. We also realized, that the experience of sound of a place lies in the tension between our attempt to grasp, and possibly map it, and the fact that sound – and atmosphere in general – naturally resists these endeavours.
