Sonictravlog

App design concept by Jonathan Edwin Lo for geomapping sounds recorded on your smartphone, capturing the audio identity of your surroundings - field recordings with GPS. Video embedded below:

Sonictravlog is a mobile app that suggests a new way to listen daily urban sounds. It uses sound as a way to connect people together.

Users can record and listen to sounds recorded by other people located in different places. Through geo-tagging, the sounds uploaded will appear in a soundmap; by listening to the sounds from different people, users can have a better understanding of our city in a new perspective.

This is very similar to an idea put forward at Rhizome’s recent 7on7 event (where artists are matched with technologists to come up with ideas for a day). Embedded below is the presentation of Turner Prize winning sound artist Susan Philipsz, and Foursquare co-founder Naveen Selvadurai:

At the moment, Jonathan is still working on the piece as a concept as part of his academic finals work in design, but is happy to work with any app developers to make it come true.

As with dog years, so is it with China years – one here is equivalent to several in America and Europe. When it comes to pace of change, no one else holds a candle really. The Chinese just fit more in. (The velocity of change is evident everywhere, as per the above photo taken inside one of China’s new superfast trains.)

I returned to China after two years away. It’s like leaving London shortly after the millennium and coming back for the Olympics. Recognizable, but look closer and you notice all the new things.

It’s the same with people. In two China years someone will have moved town three times, burned through as many businesses, got married, had a kid, got divorced and become incredibly fat. Meeting old Chinese friends feels like like lunch with a schoolmate after a decade.

i need to go back to China, live in the cities and rural counties to experience and witness all that have been changed. 接接地气~~
