Neighborhood Songlines

Neighborhood Songlines

Neighborhood Songlines is a community-oriented sound project/new music commission led by Jenn Howd (collaborator on the very popular Field Recordings including Fiona's Lullaby). Based in two Cincinnati neighborhoods, Camp Washington and Pleasant Ridge, Jenn & The Well hosted two sound-collecting events, asking the favorite sounds of households and businesses— the clanking of bottles in The Gaslight Cafe, the coos of mourning doves by Wavepool Art Gallery, the twinkling of wind chimes on a front porch, children laughing, ocean waves, and much more.

Jenn collected clips of the sounds, created sound maps of the neighborhoods for community sound walks, and turned them into musical collages for The Well’s national Mindful Music Moments program–bringing daily mindfulness and music into 300+ schools nationwide. 

Listen to the music and view the community sound maps below!

Jenn also created interactive SonicMaps, which use your phone’s GPS to play the favorite sounds we collected as you stroll through the Cincinnati neighborhood. You can also access and interact with the SonicMap from home using the links below.
