The Montréal Sound Map is a web-based soundscape project that allows users to upload field recordings to a Google Map of Montréal. Since 2008, almost 300 sound recordings from all over the island have been collected and archived.
As part of LuminoSonoCities, the Montréal Sond Map will run as an installation. In this installation, the Montréal Sound Map is projected on a window of the Goethe-Institut. The map runs on autoplay with field recordings selected at random one after another, and the map pans to new locations following each newly selected sound. The audio will be heard both outside and inside, providing viewers with two very different listening environments: one static and one dynamic.
