Over at the unstoppable and constantly amazing Make blog, I happened upon Audiocloud. Yes, like the internet, it's a series of tubes. But these tubes carry sonic information gathered from the area like music, birds and rain drops. The collaborators, Piotr Adamski and mode:lina, suggest that Audiocloud is part of the ongoing discussion of Audioarchitektura (Sonicarchitecture), "a utopian vision of a city that cannot be heard. An innovative system of sound emission, which isolates people from the unbearable audiosphere of crowded streets, traffic and all the noise that unnaturally has become an inseparable part of our life." Nice idea. No clue as to how to accomplish such a thing. Fun to look at though. link
