Travel the world through mini sound postcards….
” Sound Map is an audio project by artists Hannah Kemp-Welch and Lisa Hall, first shown at Tate Modern during Uniqlo Tate Late, June 30th 2017.

This series of audio works form sonic postcards — snapshots of each language.
Collecting speech and song from online radio stations, news channels and live web cams, we’ve sought to capture each language in a two-minute mix. The audio was gathered at midday in the respective locations to ensure a chance selection process, free from bias. Where needed, environmental sounds were also sourced from online databases.”
