The place we have chosen to make a soundscape of is the train station (second choice is that square by mc donalds) due to it being central to people coming in and out of Huddersfield. It is a melting pot of cultures and ethnicities. We will splice together sounds of footsteps, talking, trains, announcements and people eating to tell the story of all the travellers coming into Huddersfield. The station was designed by James Pritchett and built by Joseph Kaye’s firm in 1946-1950.hero-6-sample-train_tcm1085-190382





Group 1 – Ryan, Lewis, Magdalene, David and Phoebe


We have chosen to use the space outside Huddersfield St. Peters Church because there is a variety of different sonic entities including the sounds of cars, footsteps, people, bells, wind and a lot more that we can utilise and express.

This church has a rich history which could be used to our advantage to create a story with these sounds. One idea is to re-create it getting built up in 1834, with the sounds of construction and the historical environment.
