Sound Map Project class notes

Points of clarification from today’s classes

You should now have blog posts covering;
1 Interpretation of brief for at least the first audio mapping project
2 A 10 week plan for both projects
3 What you are going to try and do for the audio map

Remember a good audio recording is;
Not too loud or too quiet – recording levels
Edited as necessary
Clear and free from other sounds

If using a phone and the Soundcloud app do some test recordings first. Also useful to identify where the mic is so you do not cover it and you could point it at the sound source

Once it’s on Soundcloud copy the URI and paste it onto the data marker on your Google map

Each recording is to be between 30 seconds minimum and 5 minutes maximum.

Sound map Worksheet


Create a sound map of an agreed set of locationssoundcloud_logo1


Use 6 to 10 locations that you can easily and safely access. Agree them first with your tutor.

Capture around 60 seconds worth of material at each location.  Take some photographs as well.

You can use the Soundcloud app on your phone or a Zoom recorder and upload to Soundcloud

Create a map in Google maps and add your locations with a link to the sound you recorded at that location (There’s a mini tutorial for this)

You cannot use where you live as a location.
