Big Bang to Granary Wharf
Alan Dunn & Chris Watson & Leeds Beckett University
Since 2009 sound artist Chris Watson has been working with students from Leeds Beckett (formerly Metropolitan) University to record Leeds from new perspectives. Utilising hydrophones, contact and binaural microphones, the students have created a unique archive of hidden sounds, including Roundhay Park, Leeds & Liverpool Canal, the Henry Moore Institute and Leeds Market, alongside looming Yorkshire storms, fishermen’s maggots and electricity pylons.
