Is the soundscape of the world an indeterminate composition over which we have no control, or are we its composers and performers, responsible for giving it form and beauty? Orchestration is a musician’s business – but isn’t it up to us to undergo a paradigm shift and start hearing – not the music in the global soundscape – but the global soundscape as music? How has the soundscape of the borough changed in your lifetime? Do you have any recordings of times gone by? Come to think of it, do you want to record the present? Would you like to submit sounds to the archive?
