Wellington Calling

The next stage of the project is to develop ideas for a couple of test soundscapes for different sites and to see what the interest might be. One site will be at Wellington Station, which provides lots of possibilities to test out ideas including historical and contemporary sound recordings. Another site might be at Otari School where I am working with students already and they have started their own sound map, this could be expanded to include a wider area including the native reserve next door and perhaps interviews with local residents.
The pilot projects will be small in scale but hopefully provide lots of useful information and throw up potential problems before making funding applications, also I intended to explore the possibilities of working with some other organisations to help support the project.
