City Symphonies Can the city become a symphony?
Electric cars are increasingly using synthesised sounds in order to mimic the recognisable noise of the internal combustion engine. I explore an alternative in which the sound that the cars generate changes according to its relationship to other road users and the environment. A traffic simulation is used to power the movement of vehicles through different sections of road networks in London. From a street level perspective the motions of traffic combine the sounds to create soundscapes that are unique to the place and time.

Empathy Garden is an Immersive Space that Combines Sustainable Design with Music and Nature. Empathy Garden was designed as a hybrid space—a meeting point, a stage for events, and a showcase for farm products.
It’s a place where people and plants can thrive together in harmony, and their actions are converted into a tangible soundscape. The key concept of the project is empathy; the ability to perceive the world outside ourselves, while also realizing that we’re part of it. We believe that only through the development of a strong empathic link with what surrounds us we can find ourselves in balance with nature. The installation was structured on a geometric pattern for the central pavilion, with radial planters filled with hundreds of plants.
Landscape Architecture and Music Key elements that were taken into account were color and overall effect, as well as the proportion and geometry of the modules and “sails” as distinctive elements of the installation. . + Empathy Garden The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

If you thought one forest was enough for Duke University, think again—another will be sprouting up this weekend inside of Page Auditorium.
“How to Build a Forest” was created by PearlDamour, an interdisciplinary theater team, in collaboration with visual artist Shawn Hall. Countless elements are carefully orchestrated to create a hybrid somewhere between installation and performance. The interactive, multi-sensory experience lasts for an eight-hour period, during which time a forest of fabrics and fibers is gradually built from scratch and then dismantled entirely. Katie Pearl and Lisa D’Amour have worked together as PearlDamour since 1997. The duo won an Off-Broadway Theater Award for their 2003 play Nita and Zita, a true story of two New Orleans showgirls, through which they met Hall, who did the set design. “Once we started talking, the piece really started to take its own shape based on our mutual interests,” Hall said. “How do you bring someone into an experience? The forest of REPAIR-ations. A collaborative, site-specific art installation.
Sound or Noise? Stop whatever you are doing and listen to where you are.
Lower your phone, close your laptop… shut your eyes. What do you hear? I bet you hear a variety of sounds. But I bet you hear a lot of noise, too. If you’re asking what the difference is between ‘sound’ and ‘noise,’ the answer has much to do with desire and meaning. Andresr/Shutterstock. A CGI Monkey Sees Sounds and Hears Colors in This Synesthesia-Inducing Film. Light Motif from Frédéric Bonpapa on Vimeo. Synesthetes experience one sensory stimulation as another, like this man who can "hear" color.
Inspired by the idea of being able to "see" music, filmmaker Frédéric Bonpapa transposed the contemporary stylings of Steve Reich's Music for 18 Musicians – Section II into Light Motif, a colorful, architectural, short film complete with its own CGI monkey. "The inspiration for the project stems from the relationship between music and the visual arts, illustrated by artists such as Wassily Kandinsky, Oskar Fischinger, Norman McLaren or John Whitney," explains the video description.
