This exciting new project will develop a rich online collection of sound, music, speech and song from all over the City of Limerick. Contributions will be made by volunteer recordists from all walks of life, capturing their sonic experience of the city. Recordings will eventually be accessible through web media and smartphone adapts, allowing listeners to explore a deep ‘Sound Map’ of Limerick. It will be of considerable value to educators, artists, researchers, tourists, and of course, to the people of Limerick themselves.
The pilot phase of the project took place in summer 2013 and the soundmap based on these recordings can be found here.
This project is planned to roll out to the wider Limerick public from 2014.
