introduction

The short daily listenings and recordings that comprise this project, document the changing soundscape in the village of Woodcote, South Oxfordshire during the Covid-19 lockdown in May/June 2020 and a series of [unlocked] recordings in September 2020. The writings and reflections investigate themes of social, spatial and temporal distance.
