I should confess at the outset, that this is a reflective piece, rather than a seriously documented aspect of the legal deposit music research. It outlines what can best be described as a playful attempt to describe the legal deposit process by evoking the imagined sounds of the early nineteenth century. I was contemplating different ways to bring the story alive to an audience unfamiliar with the context of my research. After I’d told the story in what I hoped was an accessible and reasonably lively way, I continued to reflect upon ways of utilising other media to enliven things another time.
I offer you two SoundCloud recordings today, firstly a podcast update, which goes on to outline my experimentation with making a playlist of appropriate sound-effects.
For the purposes of transparency, the individual audio-clips in the Soundscape are listed below, acknowledging the sources and durations. My thanks go to their creators. I particularly thank Alessandro Cesaro and Simone Laghi for uploading their beautiful performances to SoundCloud. They’re wonderful!
Only by listening to the podcasts will you be able to discern why the other audio-clips – all sound effects – were chosen!
