Noise and sounds in different forms are everywhere. However, where, how, and to what levels noise pollution and sounds impact people is highly understudied. The goal of this Sound Around Town project is to better understand how this daily exposure affects us through your help in collection of more acoustic data within cities as well as attentive listening exercises. Through the combination of this data as well as the foundational US noise map modeled by the National Parks Service Natural Sounds Division, people will be able to become more aware of what areas are loudest. The attentive listening portion involves noting sounds and their identities as well as time at which the sound occurred, followed by an experiential survey investigating reactions and feelings toward sounds.
