summary This paper presents a methodology to augment acoustically the experience of the urban environment by mapping its fundamental spatial elements and translating them to sound and music. The methodology can be applied at any given path of an urban network to generate its acoustical representation with sounds produced by appropriately chosen musical instruments. The objective is twofold. On the one hand it targets the amelioration of the urban experience of people with impaired vision while on the other it offers a more synaesthetic spatial perception to all those who rely mostly on their retinal understanding of the environment.
