Silence

leave a comment »

I am reading R. Murray Schafer‘s SOUNDSCAPE. A classic book, published first in 1977, still an excellent read. In parallel I stumbled over an advertisement in one of those journals for uebergeek-tekkies. The Sony noise cancellation headphones with integrated AI promise some rare luxury within these days. Silence. Artificial Silence. At a first glance a bit pricy, but for the sake of research I am really considering to buy them soon.

I am sorry that I still was not able to perform Urban Sync session in Berlin. But the good news is that there has been activities alike since a couple of years.

E.g the Berlincast.

Or the TunedCity project.

Enjoy!

My local newspaper contained an article about people working hard on capturing soundscapes worldwide. The article had a focus on German activities. If you are interested in the Soundmap of Cologne you should check the great blog about the project including cc-licensed samples:
