I do photography and IT. Whilst I enjoy the highest of high tech IT, I also love the lowest of low tech photography. I can find my way around a darkroom, but equally I can lose myself in a datacenter.
What does the UK coastline sound like during the summer of 2015? What are the distinctive sounds of Scottish estuaries, Cornish beaches, the Pembrokeshire coast or a busy seafront? In what ways do these sounds fascinate us, move us or seem important to us?
Sounds of our Shores is a community-led, interactive soundmap which asks members of the public to upload their favourite seaside sounds and help build a permanent digital resource of UK coastal recordings.
This coastal soundmap project, organised by the British Library, the National Trust, the National Trust for Scotland and audioBoom Ltd, co-incides with the 50th anniversary of the National Trust Neptune Coastline Campaign. Launched in May 1965 the Trust now owns 775 miles of in England, Wales and Northern Ireland Including the White Cliffs of Dover, much of Gower in south Wales and the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland.
Sounds of our Shores is about the whole coastline of the UK. It could be the sounds of a seabird colony, the sounds of a popular seaside resort or the sounds of one of our busy ports. We want to gather as many sounds as possible to reflect the diversity of the coastline and the important role that it plays in our lives.
Life is for living, so get out and about and come and visit some of out special places and spaces!
