This project will search for the sound in the contemporary landscape architecture, an attempt to combine music and land­scaping. In a first stage, I have searched for outdoor environments where loudspeakers are used, and sites with a concious sound design. The project will result in a sound design created for the park Frodeparken in Uppsala, Sweden. In my search for sites and examples of conscious sound, I have talked to the people behind the projects I found - landscape architects, sound artists and architects. Influences from different areas have been essential for me in the project. An important question in the design process has been to explore how to sketch with sound. I have tried to use the software for editing music to scetch sound environments in a similar way as we use image editing program to make illustrations. My method turned out to be too slow as a sketch tool but the more useful for design the final sound­scape. In the presentation of the sound design for Frodeparken, I have worked with interactive PDF documents to make sound design audible in the illustrated plan. Also the inventory and interpretation of the future sounds of the park have been formed into interactive PDF documents. The proposal includes an sound walk through the park designed as a filmed collage where the perception of the sounds is intensified by association images. To create the soundtracks, I have worked in a studio with a Foley artist. When making the perspective of sound conscious in the design process you get further possibilities to compose and­ design spaces. The first step is to learn to listen to the place.
