Abstract

The sounds we associate with particular places are tightly interwoven with our memories and sense of belonging. We describe a platform designed to assist in gathering the sounds a group of people associate with a place. A web-based evolutionary algorithm,with human-in-the-loop fitness evaluations, ranks and recombines sounds to ind collections that the group rates as familiar. An experiment covering four geographical locations shows that the process does indeed ind sounds deemed familiar by participants.
