The best way to experience a city is to listen to it. Start in the concrete jungles of New York and make your way to London, where many a musician has penned a song in its honour. Or lose yourself in the bustling night market in Thailand – the choice is up to you. Sound of Cities is a series that weaves a symphony of city sounds and its marvelous melodies, creating one-of-a-kind audio sculptures you’ll want to listen to over and over again.
