'Sound of the Earth: The Pandemic Chapter‘

Preview — Apr 22, 2020

Submit your sounds now for a new crowdsourced artwork by Yuri Suzuki in collaboration with Dallas Museum of Art. 

Don’t miss the chance to be part of ‘Sound of the Earth: The Pandemic Chapter’ – a new artwork created by Yuri Suzuk in collaboration with Dallas Museum of Art formed from a crowdsourced archive of sounds captured during the global pandemic. 

The collected sounds will be integrated into an interactive digital version of ‘Sound of the Earth: Chapter 2’, the work Yuri created by Yuri for the Museum’s recent show ‘speechless: different by design’.

The artwork translates elements of the original installation—in which the exhibition visitor encountered a range of globally crowdsourced sounds by placing their ear against the surface of a spherical sculpture—into the virtual realm.

Audiences can submit sounds of their experiences during the pandemic—from cooking dinner at home, to the ambulance siren passing by, to online connections with loved ones. 

The sounds will be mapped onto a virtual rendering of the globe based on the location in which they were captured, culminating in a dynamic audio experience of the lives of people around the world.

Launching on Monday 4th May, ‘Sound of the Earth: The Pandemic Chapter’ promotes interactivity, fosters empathy, and—in this time of isolation—bridges the distance between us all through the medium of sound.
