Ray Benito and Jeremy Sheahan

We are bombarded by an overwhelming amount of sound pollution every day. We want to raise awareness by painting a sound picture of an urban city which transitions to the countryside over time. Our research shows that people who live in the city have higher levels of stress compared to people that live in the rural areas.

LA CONTAMINACIÓN ACÚSTICA

Las sociedades modernas cada vez están más expuestas a este tipo de contaminación invisible. El desarrollo de actividades industriales, el transporte, la construcción o incluso las derivadas de distintos hábitos sociales –actividades lúdicas o recreativas- traen como consecuencia un aumento de la exposición al ruido.

Survivors of the Water World - measuring pollution by sound in the River Göta Elv.

Akerselva, the river running through Oslo, was recently polluted with 6000 litres of chlorine by the council waterworks. All life was erased/killed. There will be no sound made by living creatures in the river for a long time.
By listening with very sensitive hydrophones I suggest you can measure pollution levels in a river. Certain insects can survive certain pollutants, different types of insects and other invertebrates have different tolerances to pollution and they make different sounds. If an organic pollutant is present bacteria will be in abundance and will consume the oxygen in the river. First, the more sensitive invertebrates and fish will die later and so also the more tolerant fresh water shrimp, blood worms or spices like rat-tailed bloodworms. If high concentrations of inorganic pollution such as the chlorine spill in Oslo is poured into to the river, all life will die immediately.
