Map the sounds surrounding you

All humans have the capacity to pause, listen and recognize the diversity and quality of sound in any given space. Through more active listening, each of us can find a different connection to the environments we inhabit. Nowaday restrictions due to COVID-19 have modified the map of sounds around us, as we used to perceive them: busy streets, schools, neightbourhoods, gardens, sport areas, or even some rooms of your home . . . they don't "sound" the same as before. Map the sounds sourrounding you. You can use some free mobile applications to record sounds and analyze them from a holistic point of view or from a more accurate point of view through its physical parameters. Which other ways could be used to analyse the sounds?
