Listen to your city

May 26, 2011 § 2 Comments

What would we learn if , instead of just looking at our cities, we could listen to them? SoundAffects, an experiential project by Parsons The New School for Design, tries to answer this question by turning everyday things like weather and traffic into sounds.

Placing sensors around a New York City block for our week, SoundAffects tracked objects, temperature, light, weather and so on, assigning each variable a color and sound.  Thus, everyday things acquired a life of their own and, of course, a musical sound.
