Hums are never just about songs.They are always more about stories, memories, feelings of you and me.
We collected these hums through a crowd-sourcing method in collaboration with research colleagues, partners, and volunteers who were in Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, and Scotland.
When we asked displaced Syrian families to share with us their hums of songs and tunes about food and meals, their hums were more than about food. They were for people with whom they shared meals.
The crowd-sourcing method from the Syrian Humming Project has resulted in over 120 hums and songs through which the memories and experiences of Syrian people on food, and in a broader sense, on their country, people, their hopes and dreams.
On the other hand, From the Field helped us collect the intimate soundscapes of the places and spaces of individuals and their families through their video diaries on food security under the pandemic and the consequent restrictions.
