Sound of the City Centre

Birds, boats and bells…

The North East Scotland College (NESCol) has captured some of the distinctive sounds that combine to give Aberdeen city centre its unique sonic character. The project drew on the experiences of the North-east Sensory Services’ (NESS) Service Users Forum.

Five students worked under the guidance of Tony Young, Curriculum and Quality Manager for Music, Drama and Creative Media to produce the tracks. To immerse yourself in the city centre’s sonic landscape, click:
