Creating sound maps in Brighton

Following on from my post about the 4am project – word of another art/community/multimedia initiative dropped into my inbox.

Sound Maps of London Road is a joint project between community artist Esther Springett, Matt Weston from Slack Space Brighton and Graeme Walker of Coach Werks. Its aim is to record the sounds and stories of London Road – an area of Brighton that, as the project, suggests has received a “bad press”:

Our hope is to produce an interactive sound map for public access. The edited collection of stories and sounds will form an audio archive and guide for the local community and beyond. Together we will record the cultural richness and revitalise the soul of this part of Brighton & Hove!

There are mapping workshops for locals (unfortunately I live too far off the patch) next weekend (6th) and on the 12th and 13th. Full details on the project’s website. I’m looking forward to seeing what comes out of it and how the present it.
