SILENT LONDON MARCH 2020
A binaural study by Will Cohen
please wear headphones for a true binaural experience
check your L+R phones are the correct way round (to match the perspective of the stills)
listen somewhere quiet, best wishes, Will x
In the final days before London was shut down in March 2020, I made sound recordings of areas that I care about as a Londoner. From documenting spots that I skated at as a teenager, through to areas I have worked in - I wanted to see what familiar sounds still resonated at this unprecedented time. I used the binaural microphone technique - if you close your eyes and imagine, the physics behind this method of sound capture will immerse you in a 3D stereo environment pictured in the stills that I took on my journey.
Please listen to the same locations re-captured in April to hear how the soundscape of London has changed within a month here.
