You are listening to … Los Angeles


You are listening to Los Angeles” is a mesmerizing and beautiful collage of two sound streams. Ambient music (via SoundCloud) and live police radio (scanner audio from RadioReference.com) come together to form an audio experience reminiscent of films like Paul Haggis ‘Crash‘ and Michael Mann’s ‘Collateral‘. Other US cities are available as well – I have done a quick search on Sydney police radio but am not sure it is available online.

I just pledged a few dollars to help creator Eric Eberhardt, himself a digital product manager and UX designer, develop an iPhone app version of the site. I imagine the mobile experience, walking the streets while listening to the two streams together, to be quite an interesting (if not creepy) experience.
