Everyday Listening: sonic inspiration collects inspiring and remarkable sound art and creative sound design projects, installations, reviews of urban soundscapes, places, contemporary or experimental, mostly electronic music. You might also read about new ways of using and distributing music and sound.

The term Everyday Listening is used to describe the way we use sound to find our way in our everyday life. There's an article by Buxton, Gaver & Bly giving a very clear description of this phenomenon:

"Everyday listening is a matter of listening to the attributes of events in the world - the speed of a passing automobile, the force of a slammed door, whether a person is walking up or downstairs."
