________________

We are glad to present you a soundscape time-machine that makes available on a web-based soundmap historical soundscape recordings from 1928 plus more recent ones, including 2020 lockdown. This will allow you to appreciate how the urban soundscape has changed and to reflect on what should be our aim for the future.

The presentation will cover the historical context of 1928 London and the concerns about noise raised at the time, a short history of the Daily Mail and Commander Daniel project, an overview of the technical equipment used for the recording process, and a comparative analysis of the different eras` recordings to reflect on how the soundscape has changed across the century.

Project developed by:
-Aysegul Yildirim, John Drever & Mattia Cobianchi from Goldsmiths University Sound Practice Research Group
-Carmen Rosas Pérez from Heriot-Watt University
