The sounds of our city…buskers playing upturned buckets, the rumble of the Metro, the clinking and clanking of a building site, music spilling out of shops, the hustle and bustle of shoppers on Northumberland Street.
Cathy Russell is fascinated by the music and sounds we hear in Newcastle, so much so, she is building a sound map of our city. And she wants our help to make it happen.
At April’s Urbanistas North East meet up you will learn about Cathy’s sound map idea, listen to collected sounds, lend your thinking caps to help develop the idea, and most of all, give you support to a fellow Urbanista. Because that’s what we’re all about.
Here are a few other sound collections that have inspired Cathy so far Street Music Map, Cities and Memory, and Sound Cities.
Amplify Cathy's work and have your ears opened to the sounds around you.
