I have been making good use of the spare time I have while being furloughed to make some improvements to the Norfolk Sound Map.
I’ve given the front page a little overhaul and it looks much tidier.
The most significant addition is the Full Content List. This allows you to browse through the sounds without having to use the map. It’s an alternative way to find sounds as well as being much more accessible.
I’m also looking to add some more of my creative work to the map, basically anything that includes field recordings and other audio gathered around Norfolk.
I spend a lot of time playing with sounds, be they recordings I’ve made, musical experiments, found sounds (on old second hand tapes) and soundscapes. Some of them appear on my Norfolk Sound Map and most of them are on my Soundcloud page, but none of it is really curated in any way.
I wanted to give the listening experience an identity. Something that could hold together the diverse content. I think that what I, along with Debbie Fair -The Voice of The Announcer, have created is the suggestion that you have somehow stumbled upon something intended for someone else. Undercover agents perhaps? Or maybe they are recordings from a dystopian past. Or future. Listen, and you decide.
