About

The Sound Ethnography Project is an experiment in engaging with sound to produce novel ethnographic methods and forms. The project began out of the University of California, Irvine through the collaborative initiative of graduate students in anthropology. We are scattered over continents. To take advantage of our distant geographies, a few of us thought of what sort of collaboration or larger project would be possible.

We will record a path or a point. Some will walk, bike, or drive their route while recording the soundscape. Others will pause at a specific place to record the sounds drifting through or created in that particular place. We are interested in the relationships between sound and space.

Our form is open. Our maps are transient. They cannot be static. What we’ve mapped may no longer exist. Listen closely.
