Strolling through Washington Square Park

Strolling through Washington Square Park

The assignment this week for Video&Sound is to create a soundscape and we worked in groups. First we debated on the subject and wanted to create an experience using soundscape. We decided to create walking through Washington Park experience.

Our first step was to collect interesting sounds that you’ll hear in different parts of the park. Second step was to create the route that we want to take. We wanted the listener to come in through the arch and pass the fountain going to the dog park and then go through the children park to hear people play chess. After chess the listener goes back to the fountain and hears bugs and birds and random sounds of the park and then exits the park.

So this was my first time working with sound and editing it. It was really interesting to collect the sounds by walking around the park with shotgun mic and headphones. Editing was tricky to begin and to get accustomed to the logic pro program, it took time getting used to it.

In the end we finished our project and here it is at your disposal!
