Lend Us Your Ears

Guy Jones and Steven McDaniel

Steven McDaniel

With support from MKCF, Planet Zyz collaborated with A Word in Edgeways on this project to create a sound portrait of Wolverton in Milton Keynes. We spoke to people from across the community to find out what sounds they made and to ask them what sounds they think represent their place and then Guy Jones and I went round field recording. We mixed and manipulated those sounds into a ‘Surround Sound Composition’, which we performed to rapt audiences in special ‘quadraphonic’ installations in local venues.
