Soundscape recording with Radar Loughborough

Over the summer I co-ordinated a soundscape project called The Collaborative Voice with composer Duncan Chapman for the Radar arts organisation based at Loughborough University.

We worked with students from Rawlins College in Quorn, manipulating field recordings of work songs collected by Prof. Marek Korczynski as part of his research into songs in the workplace. We also made sound recordings at a local factory and manipulating them using Sound Plant software, which turns the computer keyboard into a sound trigger and playable instrument and allows users to manipulate the pitch, length and volume of samples. Students developed their own sound maps and used them to play pieces composed by the group. We also went on a trip to London including Seeing Chris Watson‘s sound installation a Kew Gardens, a visit to Kiss FM and a performance by Scanner at Cafe Oto.
