The central object of this research is the soundscapes of daily life in domestic space and how, in that context, sound can be used as a decorative object. It is based on the relationship between domestic soundscapes, sound and audiovisual content, and the human being as an agent of production and configuration of the domestic space. It examines how new content-sharing technologies, namely online platforms and portable and multifaceted devices, have altered the opportunities to create and disseminate music. The main objectives are to explore how sound and audiovisual content is articulated with domestic daily life, and to propose a type of sound and audiovisual composition that allows sound to be used as an object of decoration.
