I really enjoyed the sound map project and I thought making myself sit in the same place for one hour was peaceful. I heard a lot of the same noises that I am sure everyone else heard:cars going by and sirens. I wanted to emphasize the sounds that were not cars, such as bike tires screeching, doors slamming shut, keys jangling, and a couple kissing. I heard these sounds from sitting on a public bus bench. I considered finding another spot further away from our classroom building, but I enjoyed my view and thought that the sounds coming from the beauty supply store behind the bench were interesting (customers chatting, keys jangling, and a door shutting). To display the sounds I heard, I decided to make a collage. I used cars in the left corner to display my view from my bench and also the backdrop my sounds were against. The bikes were across the street from me on the corner. The keys were jangling directly behind me. For the rest of the collage, I used clouds, brick walls, trees, and concrete to show the environment I was in, and also what the sound waves were going against. I also found a picture of a google map to show what my area might look like from above. My project ended up emphasizing the blues and greys and greens in my surroundings, but I think the sounds I chose to emphasize were still visible.
