Soundscaping the Urban Jungle (3:57) Dr Lawal Marafa of the Chinese University of Hong Kong's Department of Geography and Resource Management explains what soundscaping is. He defines it is a method of filtering or masking sounds which are annoying or stress-inducing with either physical obstacles to block sound waves or using calming, natural sounds to drown out noise pollution.
