Noiseprint

“NOISEPRINT – a sonic exploration in urban living space”, is a short audio visual essay focusing on the sounds produced by a residential tower block in East London. With an array of different microphones, I set out to capture the “voice” of the building, the clicks and growls continuously created by the building’s inner workings. Its vibrations, electric wiring, exhaust pipes, plumbing, etc, create a variety of sounds which permeate our living habitats. A Tower Block as a living organism.
