Welcome to our Soundscapes of Childhood project website. Please go to the University of Michigan’s version of our site here.
Discover the soundscapes made by students in the Residential College at the University of Michigan in Fall 2012. The project was realized in a class that studied children’s literature of the Great Lakes and explored personal and cultural geographies of that region.
Download or stream the soundwalks (links are in the box to the right) when you head out to the University of Michigan’s Nichols Arboretum. Follow the paths approximately for each soundwalk as the students created them in close relation to those areas and as the compositions’ dramaturgy evolves along the paths.
