The Ruins of the Salföld Pauline Monastery as a Soundscape

Csaba Hajnóczy, Zoltán Mizsei
Spring Seminars 2021

Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest (MOME) and Institute of Advanced Studies Kőszeg (iASK) started a joint research and development program. Its subject is the acoustic ecology of the Transdanubia region in Western Hungary, combined with elements of the creative provincial city music development program “Sounding City” started by the music department of iASK. In our presentation we will review the regarding pathfinding activities at both institutions in the past few years: “Sounding Houses” and “Sounding City Well (iASK) – sonic ecology related courses and events (MOME). The main focus will be the recently created website “Ruins of the Salföld Pauline Monastery Soundscape”. In its current state, the Pauline monastery in Salföld is a well-kept ruin, half an hour’s walk from the village, in the forest. The place associates two sound worlds: the sacred music of the historic church practice, and the sounds of nature.
