Lebus Court Soundscape

Pomona-Lebus Court-

Loading map...


Location: Lebus Court.

This is located near a fountain behind Little Bridges and in front of the Harwood Dorm. It is a very small courtyard with several wooden tables and a fountain that is prevalent in the recording.

Recording Setup. The TASCAM DR-40 Linear PCM Recorder was placed on a table facing the Harwood Dorm.

About the soundscape. The recording was made at about 2:40 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon. There were no other people around so it was fairly quiet. There were only a few sounds and only one that could be considered a soundmark. The soundmark is the sound of the fountain, though there are several fountains throughout Pomona College, so it is not very significant or unique. The keynote is the sound of the bird throughout the recording. There is also the sound of a car passing at some point. These sounds could be considered characteristics of the archetype of the typical outdoor soundscape at Pomona College.
