We were pleased to host the Museum of Walking’s “Sound Salon” event at our London office this week. Over fifteen soundscape enthusiasts were joined by several of the Anderson Acoustics team to share projects and ideas.
The group enjoyed listening to various contributions, including soundscapes generated by live geo-dependent data-feeds, an interactive tapestry soundscape map of the Greenwich shoreline, the sounds of a London to Brighton train journey, weather-dependent school opening announcements in a deathly cold and windy Siberian mining town, performance art in cavernous spaces and The Nunhead Album – an aural exploration of a London locale.
The pieces generated significant discussion around the nature of transport noise, the human response to soundscape and the audio representation of complex dynamic systems.
It was particularly interesting to have such a large group using our SonicRoom, which allowed the Sound Salon to extend its first-Monday monthly meetings to include critical listening.
Our thanks are extended to Andrew Stuck, lead at the Museum of Walking and organiser of the Sound Salon series of events, and we look forward to hosting another group listening evening for the Sound Salon on the first Monday of July.
