Sound Space Downtown is an open

proposal and work in progress, which 

derives from the Radio Sonar residency 

in Summer 2014 at Studio 174, in Downtown 

Kingston, Jamaica.

 

At the core of the Radio Sonar project is 

a method of listening based on propositions 

about how to organise Sound Spaces

in different contexts and frameworks. 

It is an invitation to establish a listening 

space and learning platform in which 

artistic practice and research processes 

can coexist. In this way this book 

is more of a space, rather than a book. 

It is based on and derives from three 

particular locations in the neighbourhood 

of Downtown Kingston: Fleet Street, 

Tower Street and Coronation Market. 

You can open this book and enter any 

of these places from any direction, and 

settle down wherever you like for 

as long as you find necessary. Each of these 

places co-exists and contains a mixture 

of conversations, processes and outcomes, 

practices and theories, memories, refle-
ctions, current states and fluid moments, 

working proposals, methods and manuals. 

Although each of these places is very 

particular, Downtown is not only in Kingston. 

You can find a Downtown in every city 

and town. Sometimes whole cities are 

Downtowns. You can locate a Downtown

by seeing how the stories like those in this 

book accumulate according to geographical 

locations in the city you are from or the 

place you are currently living in.

In this way, Sound Space Downtown

is also a method which points towards 

diverse learning trajectories in order 

to find out How to propose a Sound Space 

in your Downtown?
