The London Sound Survey

Hey y’all, got a quickie today, with special thanks to Jennifer Evans for turning me on to this:

The London Sound Survey, a great website chalk full of sounds from England’s capitol, including music, field recordings, historical radio broadcasts, sound maps, and more. A person could spend hours exploring and listening to the myriad sounds collected here. Kudos to the people who put this together. It’s a real treasure for those of us interested in historical soundscapes.

I’ve added it to my blogroll. 🙂

Speaking of historical soundscapes… I’ll be working on the bell posts today, and the first should appear very soon. I swear.

PS: Since I didn’t offer much info here (preferring just to send you over to the LSS to see it for yourself), you might be interested in checking out EAR ROOM’s very informative post about the London Sound Survey. the website’s content, the project’s origins, and how people can contribute their own audio recordings of London’s soundscape.
