This map lets you hear what the world sounds like without humans - The Verge
Since its beginning in 2014, Cities and Memory has created sound maps focused on protest, sacred places, and photographs. Its newest project, however, steps away from humans and instead focuses on the areas where the natural world is undisturbed. Sounding Nature is the biggest global collection of nature sounds, featuring nearly 500 sounds from 55 countries, from jungles to glaciers to underwater shrimp recordings. The map has two parts: the field recording of the sound itself, and then the musical remix it inspired. ...

we wanted to try and showcase what a map of the world would sound like if you couldn’t hear the humans. That’s really difficult to do because humans are a really, really noisy bunch and we’re getting louder all the time. Noises in the ocean have doubled every 10 years for the past 50 years, and the trend is holding even for remote areas.

The other side is that we wanted to shine a light on how the noise we make as human beings can have a serious and dramatic impact on the natural world. We’re not just talking about the animals being irritated, we’re talking about habitat changing and physiological changes.

How Restaurants Got So Loud - The Atlantic
"Restaurants are so loud because architects don’t design them to be quiet. Much of this shift in design boils down to changing conceptions of what makes a space seem upscale or luxurious, as well as evolving trends in food service. Right now, high-end surfaces connote luxury, such as the slate and wood of restaurants including The Osprey in Brooklyn or Atomix in Manhattan."
