The Thumping Guide to NYC was part of the recent Conflux 2009 festival in New York City. With the subtitle “Banging on the city’s most resonant protrusions”, the project aims to gather recordings of all the different sounds of the urban environment. On the Thumping Guide website, you can watch (and listen to) videos of participants tapping out sounds from poles, handrails, coin returns and more. Everyone is also encouraged to add a Creative Commons licence to their recordings so that anyone can remix and use the sounds and images.
