The Silence Project

This was a fascinating GPS / Audio project I worked on with Dr. Elisa Giaccardi at Boulder.

Silence of the Lands enables participants to map and annotate the soundscape of urban and natural environments. Participants can record and collect ambient sounds, create and share acoustic cartographies, and use them as conversation pieces of a social dialogue on the sonic environment. The result is an ecomuseum in which personal acoustic ecologies are translated into an affective geography that changes over time according to participants’ perceptions and interpretations of their environmental setting.
