NEW YORK CITY SOUND ARCHIVE

Sited in Lower Manhattan, this project collects the collective sonic profile of New York City. Beginning with a week-long recording session, creating over 100 GB of audio files collected across the city. These .wav files were organized, and then placed into a database. On the exterior of the building, steel plates are used that vibrate at their resonant frequencies to different contact mics placed around the city.
