Project 1 – Listening Maps / process

There are many different preferences when it comes to what people want to listen to. For the class, I researched which sound was the worst that I could hear in the college of design building. I found two elevators’ sounds, which are located in the middle of the building that is surrounded by concrete and has a transparent wall on one side. A ringing sound that I could hear from several floors below, informs it is coming. When it arrives it opens with strange sound that to me sounded like a loud cracking of steel. When it passes the each floor, it makes ringing sound like to inform us to pass the gate. Sounds, spreading from center of the building, deliver ringing sounds everywhere into the room in the building.

This was the first time that I mapped the location and types of sounds for a project. Sound in media is common and somewhat familiar to us. However, for me sound is one of the genres of music that we can listen to and for fun. From the reading in the class, I realized that sound is everywhere even as I listen to it now. People’s lives are surrounded by sound, from an air conditioner, a refrigerator, a desk, a chair, and even a monitor. Also, we have sounds of natural organisms, sounds from bugs, winds, and children laughing. There are many good sounds and bad sounds sometimes called noise. Not all sounds fit everybody’s preferences. 

How could I draw sounds? How could I transfer sounds to images? For final project, I should think about the ways that how I could map the sounds. For the final project, my location where I want to map is a store near my house. I will map that on the way of the store.
