    The Sound of Mother London

    The sound of 79 random locations in london

    I like the conflict between the traffic and the birdsong in "78 11.31 am Grange Park Road, Enfield" and the river in"76 19.55 Hogsmill River, off Cox Lane, Chessington " is nice.

    The highlight for me has to be "49 12.16 Hesiers Road, Biggin Hill, Warlingham" If you listen you can here a propeller-engined aircraft in the background, I wonder if it's a Spitfire? ;)

    obviously, in some of them nothing happens, but some are really worth a listen

    From these samples London seems to be very empty of people (except those in cars/on trains e.t.c) which is strange.

    The random element of the work was an interesting idea, this Boyle family; they DO just stick a pin in a map you know.
