Interactive Sound Maps
Soundtrack is Gokce Kinayoglu’s online interactive project built with the idea of using online maps to create playful soundscape experiences. It brings together the distanced and “objective” bird’s-eye view of the map with the immersive and intimate experience of a stereo sound recording.
The technique that is employed involves outdoor sound recordings made on the move ie. ‘soundwalks’, and GPS track-log generated during the walk. Soundwalk recordings are synchronized with GPS-time series data taken from the track-log. This makes it possible to present the soundwalks as tracks on the map, letting the user explore and interact with the sounds of a place freely through the map interface.
