Sound-Seeker/NY SOUNDMAP (2005-ongoing) - CLICKHERE for the map!
A sound map of a city is like a growing organism. Sound maps of any one location cannot hope to match the fixed in time/space quality that a two-dimensional street map represents. Rather, a sound map reflects not any one of the following but all of them combined: physical space, the activity within, time (temporal and ephemoral), the weather and any phenomenon as a result of the combination of these variables.
Sound-seeker is a part of the NYSoundmap project of the The New York Society for Acoustic Ecology (NYSAE), a NY metropolitan chapter of the American Society for Acoustic Ecology, an organization dedicated to exploring the role of sound in natural habitats and human societies, and promoting public dialog concerning the identification, preservation, and restoration of natural and cultural sound environments.
