How can we reconnect with the spaces we live in, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has forced people all over the world into isolation? Musicians and artists of Sound of X propose answers: using sounds, noises and acoustics as the basis for their urban re-imaginations, they explored their sonic environment. The resulting video-soundscapes offer a unique experience of our cities.
