Visits to the archive of semiotics at UdK

Today is my third day in the archive for semiotics at UdK.

My starting point was to look at the section of the archive dedicated to semiotics of music, a section which incorporates, besides relevant publications on the field, project-based selections of texts that are collected in folders. Two projects which seem particularly interesting are “Music as abstract communication” and “Signal music.”

The main research question which is guiding my research is, for the moment: How are sounds described in semiotics?, with a focus on the uses and functions of sound in everyday life. This led me today to a section that collects project-based folders with both primary and secondary texts on traffic signs and signals such as traffic lights and car horns.
