Soundwalk: Our Commute

Comm Lab - Video and Sound

Group Members:

Alice Sun

Amena Hayat

Elizabeth Ferguson

We were tasked to make a 5-minute Soundwalk for Communications Lab, and we chose to do one with a journey in mind. We imagined a route across the globe, with our hometowns as stops, which ended in our new home; New York City. With nostalgic sounds of each of the places we hail from, Busan in South Korea, Lahore in Pakistan, and San Fransisco Bay Area in the US, and a refreshing, hopeful ending with sounds that immortalise New York City, our soundwalk is an emotion stirrer.

The soundwalk was planned on a Google Sheet:
