Sounding Out the Tourist City is a three-year research project that seeks to explore the impact of tourism on everyday urban public ambiances, with a particular focus on the sonic ambiance. The meteoric rise of Lisbon as a major tourist destination will provide the backdrop for the different cases studies that make up the project.
Cities and Memory is a global, collaborative sound art and mapping project that remixes the world, one sound at a time. The project covers more than 95 countries and territories with more than 3,500 sounds, and more than 650 contributing artists.
Every field recording in the project has been recomposed and reimagined by artists around the world to create a new, alternative world of sound – you can listen via the sound map or our podcast.
