Publisher's description - NoiseCity Radio 1
Noise City Radio retrieves the location and classification of all noise complaints logged in New York City’s 311 system and combines it with audio recordings of noise. Listeners are invited to experience the spaces of noise complaints by tuning-in as they walk through city streets.
The app uses the listener’s location to look-up nearby sound complaints, i.e. all the geotagged records that are within 100ft – anything that should be within earshot. The listener will hear a mix of recorded sounds from Manhattan and field recordings that others have made documenting their environment.
Each sound clip matches the category of the noise complaint registered to the listener’s location. The red circle on-screen changes thickness depending on the density of noise complaint records within the space that the listener traverses.
Please note that at this time the app ONLY works in New York City.
