The printing sounds project involved recording audio, editing the image of its waveform, and 3D printing them. This project was largely inspired by my working editing audio for a podcast. As I spent more and more time sorting through waveforms, they started to become a very personal language, which I could generally work out, but which others struggled with. I could tell what shapes were my name, and which were meaningless coughs and "umm"s. When I explained it to other people, they could understand, too. But to the uninitiated, it was static.
I've taught the printing sounds process as a workshop offered to the student body, which has now been attended by over 50 students over 3 separate classes. The Hub at Colgate University later took interest in this project, improved my documentation of it, and printed their own sounds:
