The sound dimension of is an essential component of the appreciation of a Cairo neighborhood by its users. The ethnography of sound ambiances received and produced in Cairo (Egypt) must first of all be methodical. To get closer to Cairenes' everyday experience of the city sound ambiances, and to deal with one of the major difficulties of working on sensory experience as social anthropologists, an original experiment is under way. Various inhabitants made a georeferenced routine trip equipped with binaural microphones. The goal is for users of public space to put sound events or soundscapes (be they received or produced) into words, for a better understanding of specific markers of sensorial universes.
