Acoustic Commons

LIVE STREAM - Stave Hill Ecological Park

Acoustic Commons is an emerging network of live environmental streams drawing attention to the unique sounds of particular places across Europe and beyond.

Over three years (2020-22), the Acoustic Commons is developing work between Full of Noises (Barrow, Cumbria - lead partner), Locus Sonus (Aix-Marseille), CONA (Ljubljana), Soundcamp (London), HMU (Crete) and Cyberforest (Tokyo).

As the project proceeds, it will involve events, workshops and creative actions outside conventional cultural spaces, focusing on sounds as intangible resources which can be shared.

We hope #acousticommons can be a sticky concept for thinking together about sounds, ecologies, atmospheres and collective actions in (un)common time(s).
