“Beach Soundmap”, 2019

curator Maria Turkina
For art-camp "Beach Urbanism Week"
Sosnovy Bor, Leningrad Oblast

The project explores the space of the urban beach in the city of Sosnovy Bor through sound observations. Nine places with different soundscapes were selected: on the beach, on the coastline, in the forest, by the river, etc. At each place there is a sign with the recording of sounds at different hours.

A special graphic language has been developed to record sound, depending on the source and its characteristics. A visitor can approach each visualisation and compare it with their own sonic experience.
