soundsites is about helping us to understand more about the power of listening and to raise awareness of the many sounds there are around us that are being ignored. It’s invisible in the City and there’s nothing to look at out there – but everything to listen to.
soundsites essentially has no end date and will continue for as long as people want to add sounds and text to the site. It will explore how people respond to the sounds of Aberdeen and how these sounds change over time. It will allow people to experience Aberdeen in another way and to make sense of what sound means in their lives.
