Soundscape Inside Out

My final project is to reinvent the sonic space of my living space. In the past few weeks, I have been socially distancing myself at home. It enabled an opportunity for me to contemplate and reflect on my restrained physical relationship with the space I live in. With that being said, I define such relationships as dualistic. I am being sheltered by my living space away from the coronavirus. Yet I am isolated from the rest of the world. I often find myself trying to accommodate my activities to the limits of my living space. The two sides of this relationship, in my opinion, are counter driving. It has become a battle for between well beings and personal freedom. Although I choose my and other’s health and well beings above the freedom of going outside, I am continually holding my urge to break free from my restrained living space.
My final is thus an opportunity for me to attempt to make a change to such a restrained relationship, to alter the sonic space of my home. In doing so, I am trying to gain the privileges of being outside. For the past weeks, I have been recording noises outside of my apartment. These recordings include sounds of cars, walking, wind going through trees, children playing, elevator doors opening and closing, and etc. I composed these recordings into a ten min soundtrack into a single stream of noise which I played at home for a day. These noises broke the tranquility of my living space, rendering the sonic picture into a lousy street.
To better demonstrate my project, I have created a virtual space of my home with sketchup, which is shared in the following links. I have recorded my work from different locations of my home. By accessing these locations in sketchup with matching audios, the audience can have a better understanding of my work with the aid of virtual space.https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ccmurROIk2KKSltrEA0rPGYbiQUVXufB/view?usp=sharing
