In this project we are exploring the rhetorical potential of a new movement toward "social soundscaping" in which people are able to contribute, share, "prune," and listen to geo-located sounds in specific spaces. Geo-locating has to do with individuals being able to upload sounds, text, or images via an application or interface, and tag them to a specific location using their device’s gps. We are interested in how geo-locating sounds in sharable soundscapes gives us opportunities to rhetorically "speak back" to our spaces.
