House of Sounds
Iain Chambers' has produced groundbreaking work which tells the story of the City of London through its sounds, revealing the impact of its changing built and social environment. It reinstates the sounds the City has known and then lost, from the daily work of the Guilds,, the street vendors' cries heard in Tudor London, the lost waterways that criss-crossed the City, to the evolving sound of Londoners' conversations. The sonic trail will be featured at several stops around Cheapside (Bowchurch Yard, Royal Exchange, One New Change), imitating the sounds you would have heard throughout history.
