Background

Manchester : Peripheral began in Summer 2006, commissioned by Futuresonic.

During Phase 1, we worked with communities in four wards across Manchester to create an interactive sound map of four wards across Manchester – Levenshulme, Clayton, Chorlton and Moss Side.

In each ward, we asked local residents what sounds were most important to their area, who we should speak to, what musicians we should record and what issues where important to them. We’d like to use this opportunity to say thank you to all the people who worked with us.

Go to the sound map to create, save and share your own compositions based upon the sounds and words we recorded during Phase 1.

Phase 1 was commissioned by Futuresonic and funded by Futuresonic and the Museum for Science and Industry in Manchester.
