What does New York sound like? And what does the sound of New York look like? London-based art director and designer John Davies’ latest project attempts to capture the music of the city’s Manhattan neighbourhoods in physical form… The aim of Soundscape: The Physical Sounds of Manhattan is to re-engage modern audiences with the world of sound, Davies says on his website, and address our “loss of multi-sensory experience in music”. The result is a 3D-rendered map made from laser-cut perspex soundwaves – essentialy a recreation of the famous Manhattan skyline. (via Creative Review and Mark Sinclair)
