Are You Listening Leeds? (39:42) This is a public soundscape project based in an empty shop unit in Leeds Shopping Plaza in the city centre. It took place on 12th June 2010, with an accompanying window installation running until 29th July 2010.
The idea for the project came about as the result of a discussion about the sounds of city life, whether sounds were afforded the same aesthetic status as visual culture, and how sounds were used and heard in a city. The project involved devising a 24-hour soundscape of the city reduced to 24 minutes, recording in 24 different locations. This was then combined with simultaneously projected 24-hour timelapse of the Leeds skyline, equating with the time of the sounds, to emphasise the multitude of changing sounds in one city.
