An interactive web-based application that allows you to mix user generated audio samples recorded in New York City. In this urban environment we are hyperstimulated by many sounds. These sounds are often interpreted as noise and we adapt to this through creating filters that push these sounds further from our conscious.
At the same time these, many of these sounds are what define our city life and the urban environment. How can we reclaim these sounds and gain a better understanding of how to interpret them?
If we record the soundscape, we can then begin to create a vocabulary that describes the sounds we capture. Though the power of user generated content, we can begin to catalog these sounds and create deeper connections between signifier and the signified.
