Bienvenue dans mon labo / Welcome to my lab

Writing is designing. If you design a digital product without focusing on the words, it’s easy to avoid thinking about the message that it sends to its users. It sounds like a no-brainer, but it’s important to use language that your audience understands. Your users should be at the center of your writing process, and that’s especially true when it comes to the language you use in an interface.

Focused Listening

Soundmapping promotes focused listening. This website offers an interface for users to explore and listen to the city with a purposeful and special attention that is rarely given to the sounds of the environment. We aim for people to continue this attentive listening and experience the complexity and lure of the soundscape firsthand. This promotes a more optimistic approach to acoustic ecology, encouraging listeners to lend a musical ear to the soundscape.” — Montréal Sound Map
