The Norfolk Sound Map lets you explore a collection of field recordings, features and interviews created by Norwich-based sound artist Richard Fair.
You can enjoy the dawn chorus at Ranworth Broad, or hear the clock mechanism at City Hall – without leaving your chair. Listen to the revving engines of a group of local scooter enthusiasts gathering on Magdalen Street for a charity ride, or chill to the sound of rain falling softly on the trees at Thetford forest.
There are around 150 recordings, with more sounds added regularly.
Richard has been gathering sounds from around Norfolk since 2009. His background is in commercial and BBC radio. He hardly goes anywhere without some sort of recording device in his pocket.
Richard also creates and composes soundscapes and musical pieces and releases these under the name audiodays.
