Sampling sounds of the future: What does the future of Coventry sound like?
University of Warwick/Coventry City of Culture, 2021
Sampling Sounds of Coventry’s Future is a participatory project that facilitates exchange between the city of Coventry and its universities, as part of Coventry City of Culture. Supported by the Warwick Institute of EngagementLink opens in a new window, the project brings together academic researchers with artists, practitioners and publics in and around Coventry to address the question: what does the future of Coventry sound like? To answer it, we work together to create compositions and performances, using field recordings of the city.
