Calling Thunder: The Unsung History of Manhattan #ArtTuesday

Incredible series recreating Mannahatta before 1609 from David Al-Ibrahim on YouTube via inhabitat:

Before the world anointed Manhattan the “city that never sleeps,” the Lenape Indians knew it as Mannahatta, the “land of many hills.” While their way of life has since vanished into the mists of antiquity, a new virtual reality project seeks to recreate what Henry Hudson might have heard when he first sailed into the harbor more than 400 years ago. “Calling Thunder: The Unsung History of Manhattan,” draws from Cornell University’s Macaulay Library of Natural Sounds to replaces the sounds of four contemporary Manhattan locations—the Upper East Side, Collect Pond Park at Lafayette Street and Franklin Avenue, the Highline Park and Inwood Hill Park—with audio recreations of pre-1609 life.
