Sounds of COVID: A Digital Humanities Project

Created by Samantha Holmes, a graduate student completing a degree in public history at Carleton University (Ottawa, Ontario), Sounds of COVID poses the question, "What can we learn from the soundscape of a pandemic?" Visitors can listen to Sounds of COVID at the link above,on the website or on Soundcloud. There are about 70 tracks. Most were collected by Holmes, though some come from other contributors across Canada and the midwestern United States. Sounds span various themes, including: creativity (e.g., vocals with piano accompaniment), creatures (e.g., cats and birds), commutes (e.g., ambient sounds in city parks), cooking (e.g., pancakes on a griddle), and chats (via Zoom, of course). Readers may want to wrap up their listening experience by reading Holmes's "Final Reflection on 'Sounds of COVID' Project," available on the Blog page (under More).
