Abstract:Soundscape research aims to draw public awareness to the acoustic environment and to enhance our auditory experience. With the help of advances in audio technology, field recording and archiving of environmental sounds are getting popular among researchers and artists. Moreover emerging Web technologies promote various web-based sound projects such as collaborative sound archives, sound maps, and other experimental projects. These projects present innovative approach to soundscape research particularly improving user experience. However, the social and cultural contexts emanated by soundscapes are still buried in an unorganized way. The purpose of this paper is to provide an introduction and overview of soundscape research and to discuss the possibility of the Semantic Web technologies to link soundscape research with social and cultural contexts. We also suggest a preliminary design for the Soundscape Ontology to lead future research on conserving and managing soundscape as resources in the information system.
