Sound and Music | Oxford

These small writings were written over the course of a cold and still day in November 2010. I had only been living in Oxford for two months and took the opportunity to listen for spaces of an unusual auditory slant. Many of the entries seek to find areas in Oxford that are partially devoid of the typical sounds one would expect to hear in a busy City. I find this can be an intriguing way of actively listening out for quietude, remaining aware that whilst I may often hear spaces in this way, their stillness is something that is commonly taken for granted.

Please click here: Sound and Music to read about my auditory perspective of Oxford. There are some wonderful writings on the site, especially Olivia Block's Chicago & Nadine Byrne's Stockholm.
