______________________

In September of 1928 five locations across central London were recorded by a team from Columbia Records led by Commander Daniel and supported by the Daily Mail. The project was prompted by a pressing concern for the impact on health and wellbeing from traffic noise. As well as traffic sounds of the day accompanied by the occasional busker, on the recordings we hear the voice of Commander Daniel who provides an opinionated commentary on the unnecessary noises of the city.

On Sunday the 20th of September at 11.00am, we will host an armchair soundwalk in Beauchamp Place – London through a Zoom online meeting, to talk you through this fascinating project and bring you on a journey on our soundscape time machine. You`ll be able to listen to recordings of different eras and compare them with the live soundscape of the day. Please join using good quality headphones or earbuds for the best listening experience.

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