Sound Map

room map

The sounds we hear throughout the day are often over looked and easily forgotten. By simply taking the time to listen you will learn to visualize sound.

For my Production 1 class were were given the task to create a sound map of a room. I created a map laid out based off an architecture floor plan. I used solid black lines on the sound map represents objects that the sound in the room interacts with. The thicker black lines show external walls of the room and the thiner black lines are the furniture within the room.  Each sound is represented by a color on the sound map. Each color on the map shows the rage and the origin of the sound. The colors are arranged from top to bottom from where the sound originates. The solid black box is filled with the shapes of the sounds heard in the room along with colors that represents them.

  • Red is represented as waves of footsteps the come from above.
  • Orange represents the sound of a weird vent in the corner of the room.
  • Brown shows the sound of the door opening in a interesting way which was different then all the other sounds.
  • Yellow is the sound of a laptop computer low buzzing.
  • The purple represents the drawer being opened and closed
  • Darker blue color represents the color of water splashing in a puddle right next to the window in the room.
  • Light blue color shows the sound of water dripping in another puddle outside of another window.
  • The lighter blue sound was a lot softer then the dark blue area.
  • Teal represents the sound of the bed as people sit or lay on it.
