Sampling Sounds of Coventry's Future: Project events 2021
Sampling Sounds of Coventry's Future kicked off with an opening conversation on March 22, 2021 (via Zoom). The launch event started with an introduction by the initiators, followed by a roundtable of academics and artists working in various media.
An online workshop on listening methods took place on 22 May 2021. The event introduced participants in the Sampling Sounds of Coventry's Future project to methods, ideas and practices of making field recordings, and was facilitated by sound-studies scholar Dr Naomi Waltham-Smith.
During May–October 2021, the project organised a series of soundwalks in and around Coventry. These walks took us to different locations in the city and its surroundings with special relevance to the making of futures.
