Sonome ITP

A real-time noise map of the 2014 ITP Winter Show


Sonome ITP is a real-time noise map of the 2014 ITP Winter Show. The map shows noise levels in each room of the venue, allowing for an at-a-glance summary of activity at the Show.

Noise is like air – we are completely immersed in it, yet often we don't notice it at all. If we paid more attention to the sounds around us, what would we discover about our physical environment?

Sonome ITP aims to offset the limitations of our ears and minds. By ourselves we can't monitor noise in more than one place at a time. Sonome ITP visualizes all noise in a given area, allowing for easy visual inspection of the aural state of an environment.
