Julio and I were out shooting our very first Community Sound Portrait! Today’s photoshoot was in the South End. There were photos, sound level recordings, and audio recordings.–all in all, a pretty hectic day. We are super excited to share these interactive interviews with you soon. In the meantime, if you or anyone you know anyone who may be interested in participating, please direct them here.
A part of this series of interviews involves recording the actual soundscape of the neighborhood. I want to introduce you all to Morgan Freeman (some say I should rename him Don King), our handy audio recorder. He adds a great new dimension to our study. I like him. He’s truthful about the noise in our neighborhoods and holds nothing back. He tells it like it is, even if we don’t want to actually hear it.
