The Sound of Denmark – University of Copenhagen

The Sound of Denmark

A citizen science-project lead by CMEC mapping the soundscapes of Denmark. It is unchartered territory – a kind of sound exploration – but we hope to find and identify all sources that shape our aural environment and especially to get a measure of the balance between man-made and natural sounds. This has never been done on a national scale.

Go to https://lyden-af.dk/ to help us record the Danish soundscapes.
