Paris Sound Map


"Our sense of hearing, which has until recently been underappreciated as a means of representing data, can be used to expand the representational repertoire of cartographic design....Sound, in other words, provides us with more choices for representing data and phenomena and thus more ways in which to explore and understand the complex physical and human worlds we inhabit."   

John KrygierMaking Maps with Sound



This is my evolving sound map of Paris. It's made up of some of the sounds contained in my Paris Soundscapes Archive - a compendium of hundreds of sounds of Paris that I've recorded. 


To hear the sounds just click on the marker in each place.


I'll keep adding new sounds to the map so that I build up a comprehensive picture of the sounds of the city and where they are to be found.
