Week 02 – Assignment – The Soundwalk

Week 02 – Assignment – The Soundwalk

Assignment – Do a purposeful soundwalk.

Working – I chose to walk to two places: my favorite and least favorite places in Churchill Square using my iPhone microphone to compare the two sound environments.

  • Flying Tiger Copenhagen – Danish design shop that uniquely crafted everyday items from kitchen utensils to decor, art necessities, and office supplies.
    • Extremely cute
    • I buy something every time I come here
  • One Stop Travel – store providing Brighton and Hove bus, coach, and train services information and tickets
    • Extremely boring
    • I’ve been here too many times due to forgotten documents, accompanying friends, etc.

Reflection – The emotions I felt towards the places were translated into sound; the energy of the two places are complete opposites even without much editing. Tiger had an upbeat vibe with happy customers while One Stop had a monotone silence with miserable people.
