Sounds Of The City

The sounds of the city form a diverse and colourful acoustic collage. We hear them from different places, levels, perspectives and contexts. These impressions are stored by our subconscious, bringing an enormous power of experiences and emotions.

SOUNDS OF THE CITY is an interactive auditory system, which will allow us on every Saturday to hear another sound realm of Warsaw. All the visitors of the Discovery Park will be able to influence – by using special sound modelling posts – a musical composition.
