Chris Watson building sound map of Sheffield

Field recordist and musician Chris Watson is collecting sounds of Sheffield for a new sound map of the city which will be installed in the city's Millennium Gallery. Watson is asking the public to contribute their own recordings of Sheffield (two minutes or less). Sounds can be submitted via SoundCloud to Chris Watson's Sheffield Sound Map, or emailed as an attachment, with the subject line Sheffield Sound Tag. More details here.
