dc.description.abstract This thesis is a documentation of the process of conceptualization, design and production of a site-specific sound installation named Reminiscence. There were two intentions behind this project. One was to explore our relationship with sound. This is done by exploring emotions associated with aural memories within the context of sound studies. The other was to present these aural memories in the context of sound art by expanding on the concept of an audio documentary. Sonic compositions are created based on the narrative of aural memories of previously recorded participants and presented along with an assemblage of books, jewellery boxes and other selected objects within the installation that evoke a sense of memory. The compositions combine concepts of context-based composition, soundscape composition and composing with recorded speech. By comparing compositional and structural elements, I analyse how Reminiscence can be placed as an expanded form of audio documentary within the context of sound art. en
