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?
