What does the future of Coventry sound like? This event, which was hosted by Common GroundLink opens in a new window, showcased sound works, films and an app that bring this question to life.

Artists, researchers and residents of Coventry presented visual and audio works they created over the summer to take the audience on an audio journey into a sampled future that featured fairies from Spencer Park, a once lost violin called the “Godivarius,” and the story behind a shop on Stoney Stanton Road. The five presentations were followed by sounds and music by DJs.
