TED Talk 2013 – TimesCenter NYC

In this uncharacteristically quiet talk, artist and sound innovator Jason Sweeney offers an aural picture of the city. In 2012, he was awarded a TED City2.0 Prize for the creation of the new participatory online, sound-based and composition project Stereopublic: Crowdsourcing the Quiet—which was activated in cities worldwide, including Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Edinburgh, Sheffield, London, Los Angeles and New York. Find out how the soundscape of the city is more complex than first listen.
