Where is the sound? Nowadays, due to the current situation in the world, our sound environment is changing. Where the sound was crowded now it is absent. Sounds of absence is a project managed by A. R. S. (Art research sound), in which we are collecting a sonic archive of different places around the world, that now are empty, Airports, streets, trains, bus stations, and so on.
We would like to ask you for your kind help, please share with us a recording of a place that was busy but now is empty, someplace near your house, at least 5 minutes, and you can prolong as long as you want, you can take a picture if it´s possible for you, for sure your name will be mentioned and credited (if you are agreed). Along with the recording, we ask you to give the next information: Time, date, location ( name of the city, street, number, etc.)
The recording could be done with your cellphone, but if you have a different or better media, will be better.
How is the sound of absence in your current days?
