The Weekly Challenge 2020, 10th February – Sound of This Place
This week’s challenge is set by Gordon Baxter, a user-experience consultant from the East Neuk of Fife. Gordon has taken inspiration from Chiarra Luzzana’s “The Sound of City” project (https://vimeo.com/190947830) and challenges you to capture the sounds of the place where you live. What story do they tell?
Close your eyes and just listen for a few moments…
Can you capture the sounds around you without using images? You might choose to write a short poem or story that describes the sounds, or spend a couple of minutes recording the sounds using a voice recorder, or by taking a video on your phone (and blocking out the camera.) Could you use the sounds of this place to create some music? You might choose to use your recordings in a musical composition – or use the place as your percussion!
If you are deaf or hearing impaired, could you choose a different sense to capture the personality of your chosen place? What does it smell like? What are the tastes, sights or textures around you?
