How the cities sound

This is exciting: “Sound City Project” is about to turn Google street view into the acoustic feast. Using the typical sounds of different city outdoor spaces they create sound collage to acoustically recognizable enables you to understand where you are and the feeling of a certain place: their acoustic fingerprint!

To create the steroscopic sound the Sound city project team created their own “sound head” with 4 ears, as they at least needed 4 channels. The “head” was created using Maya and is trying to copy the human head enabling the simultaneous recording of the all 4 tracks.

Take a first stroll around the streets of New York & San Francisco via their web page, here!
