Sonic Sounds: The Sounds Around

October 24 @ 10:30 am - October 25 @ 3:30 pm

Join Sonic Investigators Matt and Amy to discover how to capture sounds and manipulate them to create your own personal soundscape.

When we stop and listen to the sounds around us there are many strange and wonderful noises that we might not have noticed.

We want family teams to join us to create a series of sonic pictures of the sounds you find around you during your October half-term.

We’ll give you tips and tricks to spot interesting sounds, get the best recordings using your phone or voice recorder. Then you’ll be shown how to digitally manipulate them to produce your very own audio artwork.

You’ll learn how to make great recordings using easy to access equipment, as well as the basics of audio engineering using the free editing software Audacity.

Your final work will be uploaded to the Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums Soundcloud platform.
