What does Chelmsford sound like, and how does that vary from other cities? How do you best capture complex soundscapes? This two-part event will increase your awareness of the city’s rich soundscape and allow you to think about how it has changed over time. The morning will consist of a guided walk around Chelmsford, giving you the chance to record a variety of locations. In the afternoon, an editing session at the Essex Record Office will introduce you to the basics of sound editing software. Both parts will include training by an audio engineer.

Charge will be £20 for the full day (lunch not provided). The event will go ahead come rain or shine, so participants should wear comfortable footwear and suitable clothing.
