What does the National Park sound like?
UK NATIONAL PARKS SOUND MAP
What’s it all about?
We are putting together a Google Earth Web sound map for UK National Parks.
We are a group of researchers, passionate about listening and about how we, as human beings, relate to the sounds around us in our daily lives.
We want to find ways of helping visitors and residents of each Park to engage more with the invisible, yet audible world of sound, encouraging more attentive listening.
What do ‘our Parks’ sound like? How do their sounds affect our lives, our health and sense of wellbeing?
The idea is that we’ll eventually cover the whole of each National Park with sounds, recorded and uploaded by you, which represent the vast range of sounds we can hear in our parks.
Go to the website www.petestollery.com/nplandingpagepublic to submit your sounds!
This event is part of the New Forest Awakening Festival which runs throughout March 2023. The Festival is about increasing people’s understanding of the issues in the New Forest and how we can all help respond to the nature and climate crises. Click here to find more Awakening Festival events.
