Through My Ears

 Through My Ears is an binaural audio map constructed on an imbedded Google map.  The present sound 

clips on the site are based in California and represent an assortment of recordings from skate parks to a walk through a canyon.  Like Our City, Our Music the goal is to create an immersive audio experience.  Where we differ is that we will encourage participants to actually stand in the same geo-located space and double up their experience by adding past and present sound and visuals.  The layered audio experience is still possible with Through My Ears if you can access the tracks on your mobile devices.


BBC Sound Index

The BBC has launched a new Beta platform, Sound Index, that crawls through popular music sites and blogs ( Bebo, MySpace, Last.FM, iTunes, Google and YouTube ) capturing public info off of them about what people are listening to, watching, downloading, and logging on to. It does some math.. crunches the data and makes an index of the top 1000 tunes & artists placing them in order of their popularity. The Index is updated every 6 hours.

It works along the similar principle as Jonathan Harris’ and Sep Kamvar’s, We Feel Fine, which searches the internet every 20 minutes for people blogging about their feelings. And all pulled together in a very pretty way.
