    23: Soundwalking with Dan Pope

    23: Soundwalking with Dan Pope

    One of the ways to explore a place is through its sounds - & in this episode, Dan Pope took me on a soundwalk along the River Avon to find out what we could hear.

    We talked about what soundwalks are, Dan's work as an acoustic consultant, how soundscapes can be added to places, and what people can use to explore sounds in their area. There are some resources, a map and lots of links on my website:
