Abstract [en]

With the formation of the working group ISO/TC 43/SC 1/WG 54 “Perceptual Assessment of Soundscape Quality” of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in 2008, a debate has arisen on what soundscape quality should mean. The Swedish Soundscape-Quality Protocol defines soundscape quality operationally as a single, one-dimensional Good-Bad scale. Critics argue that this is unsatisfactory, because there is no one ideal soundscape. Rather, they argue that soundscape quality is relative to a place and the outcomes that the soundscape of that place facilitates or enables (e.g., conversation without interruption, nature appreciation or psychological restoration). In 2013, a questionnaire study will be conducted in Sheffield, UK, including about 900 users/visitors in 45 urban and peri-urban areas, divided on 9 different kinds (e.g., pedestrian areas, residential areas, parks, and plazas). The purpose is to define soundscape quality and to further develop measurement methods in this field. The results are expected to contribute to methods for 'green labelling' of soundscapes, and to support the development of the International Standard ISO 12913 on soundscape. The present paper discusses research plans and initial results.
