language barriers

Samuel Porta

Sound recording of a Spanish undergraduate student asking for directions to his chemistry class to a Non-Spanish speaking undergraduate student. The recording highlights the challenges of language barriers in the aural architecture of the space. The recording was taken around 12 pm in the hallway between classes in the Klaus building, which is why other students can be heard conversing in the background. Recorded with an iPhone 6 using the built-in microphone and voice memo application.
