It is difficult to identify any work of sound studies that does not deal in some way with space, if only by implicitly incorporating epistemological and ontological commitments with respect to the spatiality of sound. This entry therefore proceeds through an exploration of certain modalities of space, or spatialities, that have emerged at the center of the field: namely, phenomenal field, the virtual, ecology, territory, and circulation. I close with a call for sound studies to lend a more attentive ear to the interactions of discrete sonic spatialities, using as an example my own ethnographic research in coastal Kenya.
