Bio-diversity and Edinburgh City Sounds FRIDAY 6th APRIL 4-7pm

29 March 2018
Edinburgh CitySounds is an experimental project that focusses on how sounds captured in the Meadows can inform people about biodiversity, health and well-being, as well as provide a unique resource for artists and data scientists.

There are a number of CitySounds events happening to mark the end of the first phase of the project, in particular a ’walking’ workshop about sound in the city led by Zoë Griffiths— see below for more information. Although there is high demand for the workshop, we have earmarked 6 spaces for members of local community groups and initiatives.  If you are interested in attending, could you please get in touch with Cat Magill (C.Magill@ed.ac.uk) ASAP?
There is also an opportunity for anyone who is interested to visit and interact with an art installation at St. Cecilia’s Hall that uses sounds collected on the Meadows. Anyone attending the workshop with Zoë will also be able to visit the installation. More information here: https://citysounds.eu/2018/03/citysounds-makes-a-noise/.
