Hlysnan is SoundFjord’s monthly listening event, exploring the world of sound is all its facets, guises and surprises!
This event will be an evening filled with films, visuals and sounds selected by Ian Rawes of the British Library Sound Archive and founder of The London Sound Survey. Ian is a fabulous speaker and we are delighted that he will present and AV presentation filled with past sounds with their present counterparts, incorporating old maps and photographs to set the scene.
Ian is an authority on the vernacular of sound. He works for the sound department at the British Library and has set up the London Sound Survey to collect "the sounds of everyday public life throughout London" and to compile "past accounts to show how our sound environment has changed". This breadth of aural/oral, visual and literary information in an archival format is quite astonishing, yet simply a hobby to him.
This event is a must see and listen!
