Sounding Coastal Change
Sounding Coastal Change is a research project about environmental and social change in North Norfolk. The idea is to use sound, music and different kinds of listening, to explore the ways in which the coast is changing and how people’s lives are changing with it. The research team includes geographers, musician/composers and sound artists, and an art/documentary film-maker. We work collaboratively with residents, school children and young people, local interest and community groups, institutional stakeholders and their representatives, and visitors to the area. We explore coastal change through workshops, live performances, radio broadcasts, sound installations and interactive exhibitions. Examples of sound works, music recordings, photography and film produced through the project are geotagged and uploaded to an interactive sound map, to both document the project as well as showcase the creations of the people we collaborate with. The project is funded by the Open University, the University of Dundee and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). The project home is Blakeney village.
