Recording Urban Soundscapes Workshop Led by Jaylen Smith
(Part of the NN Ambassador Programme)

Saturday 13th July, 1-3:30pm

Join us for a free, experimental and exploratory workshop that follows a journey of sound through Northampton.

Suitable for age 16+, the workshop comprises of two activities. Participants will first meet at the gallery to follow a guided walk through different acoustic spaces in Northampton town centre, working together to capture traces of sound¬†using handheld recording devices. On returning to the gallery’s Project Space, participants will create a SoundCloud programme of their combined experience, collaboratively building a sonic map of Northampton.¬†The workshop aim is to explore the breadth of sound that flows through Northampton brought by those travelling through the area, including those on the soundwalk.

Regrettably our Project Space is only reachable via a flight of stairs and is at present inaccessible to wheelchair users. The guided walk will last approximately an hour; please arrive on time so as not to miss out on the walk. All equipment will be provided by the gallery and no previous experience is required.

Admission is free; however, booking tickets is essential.
