Sonictravlog is a mobile app that suggests a new way to listen daily urban sounds. It uses sound as a way to connect people together.
Users can record and listen to sounds recorded by other people located in different places. Through geo-tagging, the sounds uploaded will appear in a soundmap; by listening to the sounds from different people, users can have a better understanding of our city in a new perspective.
There are two recording modes:
– Timer mode: the app will record a short clip from time to time automatically. This acts as a sound diary.
– Navigate mode: the user can record sounds according to a route they’ve created or joined. Users can interact with each other by adding own sounds to their friends’ route, then they can listen, compare and reflect on what they’ve observed and listened in the same area.
