London Sound Survey

Something extraordinary going on here. IM Rawes is building a finely-textured archive of London sounds, published under posterity-friendly licences and with a range of clever ways to access the audio (maps, historic and current, being the main way in). I’m somewhat in awe – and quite excited about being able to contribute my own sounds via the Soundcloud dropbox. This one – I could have chosen dozens – is a lovely suburban snapshot recorded on Horsendenhill golf course in North-West London. A minute of stereo sound, recorded by IM Rawes, including all the signature sounds you’d expect: “rumble of distant traffic with sirens, bird song,” and, my favourite bit “occasional thwack of golf clubs.”
