Storytelling for places #mylandmarks
Wednesday 28 August 6.15pm-7.45pm The Cole Hole on The Strand, London

Join us on a hands-on walkshop to learn how to compose and record stories about the places we love, cherish and remind us of our fondest memories.  This is 90 minutes packed with fun tips about how to create your own portfolio of #mylandmarks: geo-located audio stories with Placecloud founder George Fort, ably assisted by two social historians.  Andy Williamson is the author of a history of the Savoy Hotel,  not just its formal history, but the stories of gossip, scandal and high society.  Mitch Feral  is a musical hall performer and historian, with stories of the 'free-n-easys' that lined The Strand.  Join them all in this fun filled walkshop so you too can record stories about the places you cherish. £8/£6  Read more & book
Recording and listening in between sounds and silences
Saturday 31 August 10.00am - 1.00pm British Library, London

A library is a place of a silence nevertheless, a space of people, desperately trying not to make noise,  as close as one can get to a no man’s land between sound and quietness. In a walkshop in and around The British Library we will explore and make recordings, searching (maybe desperately) for silences around the library and sounds inside of the library.

This walkshop is organized in the frame of Ecumenopolis, a sound walk project developed for Sound Walk Sunday 2019, globally searching – in and around libraries of large cities-  for similar and different sounds of these cities and their libraries. For Sound Walk Sunday, we organize walks and make recordings  -together with local sound artists-  in / around the City Library of Sao Paulo, the State Library of Moscow, the National Library of Athens and The British Library in London.

The recorded sounds of each city are mapped and placed on locations of another city with the collaborative software platform CGeomap, allowing one to walk with your mobile device and headphones inside and around your library and hearing simultaneously the silences and ambiances of another place. Free event - booking essential Read more & book
