A series of video explorations in response to the question:

"If we knew more about the sounds around us, could it enhance our experience of the city?"

Sketch 1. Change the levels
Headphones that turn down street noise, to help the sounds of the world reach us clearly.

Sketch 2. Noise map
A map showing noise levels around the city. Used here to find a quiet place to make a phone call.

Sketch 3. Context layer
Sound layered at specific locations to provide cultural context to local landmarks.
