Soundscapes of Mission is part of the City of Mission’s Artist in Residence program for 2021. These soundscapes are taken from various locations in Mission, BC, throughout the months of September and October, 2021. Locations were chosen based on resident recommendations when posed the question, “Where do you go to feel connected, happy, or relaxed?” that was publicly accessible. Additionally, through pleasant drives of Mission, I would stop in locations that had a significant amount of people occupying the space. At each location I would record the soundscape of the area. Soundscapes are a tool to help you actively listen, understand a sense of place and “an opportunity to examine our relationship as listener to the environment”. (O’Sullivan, 2021).
