45 symbols is a international project about exploration of visual language. In this worshop we had to come up with a range of 45 symbols on a theme of our convienence.

The Sounscape symbols represent a sound or a combination of sounds that you can find everywhere, in nature, a city etc.
The challenge was to create a new visual language of sounds, that once combined can give you a soundscape of a specific place. This visual representation of sounds also allows you to create a partition that can be read as a piece of music.
