The City Rings

The layers of landscape

We are excited about this edition of The City Rings. Located between Lausanne and Geneva we overlook Lake Geneva. At this time of year there are many layers in the landscape that remind us of soundscapes within the changing seasons. We’ve just had snow in the mountains.
See what you think.

For this edition we have a mixed aged group of artists collaborating between two after school clubs namely Digital Photography and Radio club. We are between 9 and 13 years old.

Our bell is digital and very similar to our local supermarket announcement.


Taking photographs of sound…

For this edition of The City Rings we are inspired by the recent Mozilla festival and the words of sound artist Klasien van de Zandschulp, “All around us people take photographs and we don’t even notice, but when we make field recordings of sounds, some people think it odd?”
Our digital photography club exchanged their cameras and smartphones for sound recorders, capturing moments through audio. Following the recording they took a photograph that represented that moment. Can you match some of the sounds to the images?

Many thanks go to Juan Felipe and Paul, our photography mentors who were openminded to capture visual images as sounds.
