Sounds of the City

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Art Direction / Art Direction for Enhanced Poster Advertising / 2016

Thalys wanted a fresh way to present their train destinations. Something different from the usual photos of famous tourist spots. We captured the sound identities of Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam and integrated them into three outdoor installations. Each city was represented by over 1000 sounds, and each sound had a unique headphone jack. The sounds included overheard conversations, street musicians, language lessons, market sellers, church bells, and archive sounds resulting from a partnership with the French National Audio-visual Archives.
