Streetscape Symphony

Urban Sensing and Data

Streetscape Symphony is an interactive audio installation to explore New York City’s five boroughs for the New Museum’s Ideas City Festival.

Though we often tune out the aural aspects of our surroundings, our acoustic environments have a profound effect on our daily lives and offer important insights into our cities. Offering an aural interpretation of New York City’s untapped capital, Streetscape Symphony is an exploration of the dialogue between the city’s design and the people who inhabit it.
