Millennium Urban Soundscape Project, 2000
Chicago Location Recordings
The "Millennium Urban Soundscape Project" was
designed to form a sonic time-capsule of city life at the
end of the Twentieth Century. It is during the last
century of this millennium that the greatest growth of
urban centers has taken place. For example, if one were
to have stood at the main intersection of their city in
1899, the sounds that they would have heard would
have been totally different than those that occur today.
Many intriguing sounds were submitted from contributors spanning 5 continents.
The M.U.S.P. was curated by recording artist Chris Meloche.
