Types of sound

What is Cities and Memory

There are many different types of sound, from the natural to the man-made.

Cities and Memory maps and documents these sounds, but also recomposes and remixes them into something new.

Here, we arrange the world’s sounds into some common categories so you can listen to the similarities and differences around the world – and to their reimagined, alternative versions.
