Our trips to the seaside are usually described in visual terms, ‘oh what a lovely view’. But it is often our sense of hearing that defines our experience of being beside the sea. From the quiet sounds of the waves lapping on the beach, to the sound of families laughing together, I find the sounds we hear enthralling.
After a soundwalk I undertook earlier this year I was interested in some of the discussions around sound that had happened during the walk. So as part of World Listening Day, I asked the public to help me survey the sonic landmarks of the seaside.
