Soundscapes of the city

Dr Yecid Ortega is currently working on a research project that involves mapping the languages and cultures of the city. Using sound walking methodologies, he has recorded sounds, taken videos and photos to capture and amplify the diversity of the spaces we inhabit. The main goals of his project are 1) to theorize how the concepts of languages and cultures intersect and synergically co-exist, and 2) to build a sense of awareness of the vibrant cultures and languages thus creating a welcoming feeling of belonging in our communities.
