Community Sound Portraits
Urban communities are inundated with sound. However, not all sounds are considered noise. To complement our surveys in the Greater Boston Area, Noise and the City, in conjunction with local artist, Julio Cesar Roman, have created Community Sound Portraits. Community Sound Portraits is an arts project aimed at delving deeper into the community noise experience by moving beyond noise as a hearing experience to a point where we can see noise through the lens of actual community residents—both the welcome and unwelcomed aspect of it.
Community Sound Portraits will consist of a series of interviews, sound clips, noise measurements, and photographs of residents in their communities. We are interested in residents from all walks of life and encourage all who are interested in sharing their thoughts about noise in their community to fill out an application here.
Your story will be featured both on our online exhibition.
