Hearing Toronto

What does the city sound like?

Sounds of My City is a neat little project that needs your help to get bigger. The site aims to create a collective audio record of Toronto, from the sound of streetcars to the smacking of lips at Taste of the Danforth. As the site’s creator says, “Together we can create a sound-map of all the little corners, big streets, neighbourhoods, parks, landmarks, events and festivals that make up Toronto‚Äôs soundscape.” All you need to participate is a free app for your smartphone and a little imagination.
