The Presence of Sound

Due to my own interest in sound, I want to focus on its meaning. What do I hear…? What is the influence of sound on life?

During my research I started collecting data which consists of field recordings of sounds from my daily life. The COVID-19 crisis however, has a big influence on this. I want to know if my sounds can be lead into a collective memory that we all experience as victims of these strange times. These atmospheric impressions can lead to a collective memory of sounds.

By presenting various sound fragments of this time within a digital landscape, I create the opportunity of making a new soundscape. The users choice based on sound triggering with elements and mouse interaction will lead to that new soundscape.
