Soundmarks

"Sounds that have been in a particular place for a long time I call soundmarks. Like landmarks, they define its essential character, rendering it unique."

- R. Murray Schafer, 1993

In Resounding Rivers, Matt Green has re-imagined some of Belfast's now-disappeared soundmarks - the rivers that once flowed through the city.

What are the soundmarks in your area?

The sound of the pelican crossing telling me when I can cross the road. Everyone from the tiny children at the school across the road to my dog knows what they mean, but I wonder how long it will be before they are replaced by some new signal and we'll be having to explain to another generation how we knew we could cross the road because the beeps were faster.
