Ouseburn Sounds

in collaboration with the Ouseburn Trust
Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK – June 2014

The project revolved around the area of Ouseburn valley at Newcastle Upon Tyne. The team investigated the historic (1930s-1950s) and the contemporary sound identity of the area through archival research, phenomenological research (memory walks), interviews, surveys and participatory observation. Moreover, the project assessed the new media heritage interpretation currently applied at one of the area’s main attractions (the Victoria Tunnel) and proposed a number of new media interpretation alternatives for a more engaging experience of the area.
