Sounds of the Cultural Quarter

Historical Soundscapes & Sound Map –

The premise of my contribution to the project was explore the soundscapes of the cultural quarter, reconstructing historical soundscapes as a way to engage local people to explore and connect with the history of the area through sound.

I was commissioned as part of the ‘Affective Digital Histories’ project, working with academics and historians from University of Leicester and the East Midlands Oral History Archive.

My work on the project was featured on National Radio, BBC Radio 4 PM Programme (Historical Soundings) and on regional Television.


Outputs from the project include the Sounds of the Cultural Quarter app, and a series of field recording libraries:


As a result of this project I was commissioned to work with the University or Northampton on their own historical soundscape project.
