The UK SoundMap is a new community-led survey in sound of the acoustic landscape ('soundscape') of Britain. You can help answer these questions:
* What does the UK sound like today?
* What impact do these sounds have on our lives?
The SoundMap is a partnership project of the British Library and the Noise Futures Network. It uses widely available mobile technology in a novel way to capture and aggregate research-quality audio samples. Your recordings will be studied by experts from the Noise Futures Network and we shall post an overview of the research results once sufficient data has been collected and analysed
