A Sound Map Of Harrogate https://www.soundmapofharrogate.co.uk Mapping The Soundscape Of The Borough Sun, 27 Jan 2019 23:56:28 +0000 en-GB hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=5.0.4 Is the soundscape of the world an indeterminate composition over which we have no control, or are we its composers and performers, responsible for giving it form and beauty? Orchestration is a musician’s business – but isn’t it up to us to undergo a paradigm shift and start hearing – not the music in the global soundscape – but the global soundscape as music? How has the soundscape of the borough changed in your lifetime? Do you have any recordings of times gone by? Come to think of it, do you want to record the present?

This includes Dragon Road. I sat down outside the Petrol Station with microphones and set to it.

To listen to this recording, a good pair of Headphones are recommended. See, this is a Binaural Recording – so, it is a stereo recording and the microphones were placed on either side of my head. When you listen back to it on good headphones it gives the impression of what I heard, quite accurately.
