Victoria Meyers architect's Sound Urbanism/ Sound Ecology graduate seminar at University of Cincinnati's Graduate School of Architecture produced informational sound sections, studying sounds in Cincinnati, marking the city's change from an industrial to a service economy. Students: Anjali Patel and Adam Wisler.
Below are a few of the sections, including sound recordings of their respective sites:

The work in the seminar was excellent, and the students pushed our explorations about cities, urban space, and sound to new levels. The height of the semester was the Skype lecture by Dr. David Mather, from the Getty, reviewing the works of David Dunn (http://www.davidddunn.com/ASL/Welcome.html), including Dunn's ground breaking work on Sound Ecology. Our goal for the next sound seminar is to schedule a trip to Dunn's studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
