Shared spaces for reflective quiet are slowly disappearing from towns and cities. This immersive sound installation explored ways in which the soundscape of our local quiet spaces such as faith buildings, parks, libraries, towpaths, galleries and museums support our sense of stillness and reflects on what value these silences have for people today.
