Toronto the Grey and Multicultural

Challenge: Noise Challenge #1: The Pulse |

By: Mitzi

Inspired by the first Noise Project prompt, I’ve been listening to the sounds of Toronto, trying to decide if they constitute noise, and thinking about what noise means to me.

Toronto can be very grey this time of year and the sounds have the same dull and continuous roar that I associate with that colour. It also has a tremendously vibrant and varied ethnic population and many of the spoken words that stick out of this aural landscape are in languages I don’t speak or understand.
