Ithaca Soundscape Project

The Ithaca Soundscape Project is an ongoing sound art work built on crowd-sourced field recordings made in the Ithaca area. It was recently presented as a solo performance as part of the Cornell Society for Humanities annual conference “Sounding cultures: from performance to politics” as well as at the Johnson Museum of Art as part of “Look and Listen”, an inauguration of the museum’s new wing. At this latter performance, creator Eliot Bates will be joined by Kevin Ernste, Taylan Cihan, and Tim Feeney; each performing live mixes of their own soundscapes, while the audience created its own soundscape mix by moving through the museum.
