Soundscape design in urban planning has always been regard as noise control, however, avoid noise is a negative way to improve soundscape. Schafer believes that we must seek a way to make environmental acoustic a positive study program.

SoundTransmission is a sound installation located in Queen’s Way Hyde Park gate. Outside of the gate has complex urban sound like traffic and construction, however, if you go inside of the gate, just around 10 meters, the noise will be reduced obviously, environmental sounds from park become stronger.

This project aims to take the sounds directly from the park to the road to cover urban noise. Six speakers present six different sounds which come from the park improve this place’s soundscape. (people’s running, duck call, wind, birds song, cicada sound, trees’ rustling)
