Sonic Stops - an audio journey across Leeds

Online Event

Dates and times

3 May 2021 - 31 Dec 2021

Online Event

Music:Leeds have commissioned Leeds audio collective, Better Songs to create an audio journey across Leeds celebrating its musical landscape in response to the Abbey House Museum exhibition Sounds of Our City

Sonic Stops allows listeners to trace the musical geography of the city, following the route of two existing First Bus journeys crossing South to North and West to East. Through two soundscape compositions spanning the length of the bus journeys, listeners will move in real-time through musical ‘stops’ immersing them in some of the music styles, places and stories featured in the Abbey House Museum ‘Sounds of Our City’ exhibition. Making use of audio from the archive as well as new collaborations with local musicians, the soundscapes will weave together music, speech and atmospheric sounds to create a continuous journey and leave the listener curious to discover more.

The soundscapes are available to listen to online or on the bus routes they follow when we are all able to get back on to buses as normal.
