hEAR DROPS #12: CITY LAYERS

The 12th episode of our educational animation series hEAR DROPS makes you stop and listen to the many layers of sound that you encounter in a city every day.

Each city is a rich soundscape brimming with life. You are invited to listen carefully. Often you don’t even notice how many sounds you hear all at once! The traffic, the buzz, but also the birds, a crying baby, sirens blaring.

Sit down on a bench and close your eyes. Start listening, shifting your attention between the different layers of sound you hear. This way, you become more aware of the sounds around you, each connected to different threads of life.
Take a deep breath, and LISTEN to the City Layers.

Fun fact: the colors used in this video were inspired by Vincent van Gogh’s painting ‘L’Oise à Auvers’ (1890).
