Robert Fripp

London sound survey

What does London really sound like?

The answer is in the "London sound survey" , a growing collection of "Creative Commons-licensed" sound recordings of people, places and events in the UK's capital.
Different catalogues are proposed as : "Sounds of the musical Museum", "The sirens of Hampton", "Economic actions", "wild life", "social life" ... etc ...

A huge collection of good quality recordings, with a huge "soundcloud" space...
and an study on Historical references to London's sounds.

Here is the raising of the Tower Bridge from inside the bascule chamber : amazing!
