“When, as today, environmental sounds reaches such proportions that human vocal sounds are masked or overwhelmed, we have produced an inhuman environment.” – R. Murray Schafer
The project tries to raise awareness of the effects of noise pollution on people’s health and sense of well-being. Peace and quiet are essential to rest and recuperation. City traffic and other noise pollution raise blood pressure and heart rate, disturb sleep, and can lead to hearing loss or deafness, in extreme cases. The project seeks to focus on
a changing sonic landscape and experience the extremities of sound in our modern world.
