Favourite Sounds of Hull

“You learn a lot about a city by asking about its sound” – Peter Cusack

What is your favourite sound in the city where you live – or where you grew up, studied, worked, fell in love, played football or rugby league – or simply spent some time?  Sonic artist Peter Cusack has been asking these questions since 1998 – and building an endlessly fascinating archive by inviting replies to this question in London, Beijing, Prague, Berlin, Birmingham, Manchester and Southend-on-Sea. The result is a series of intriguing and often surprising results, revealing both the city of the ear, and the significant role that everyday sounds play in our lives.

Favourite Sounds of Hull is a further step in a journey that encourages the local community as well as those who know and love Hull, to identify and share with the rest of the world, their favourite sounds of their city – a project devised especially for Hull, running from the autumn of 2016 and throughout the City of Culture year.

See Hull’s Favourite Sounds so far.

Curated by Peter Cusack, and produced by Serious in association with the School of Arts of the University of Hull, the public are encouraged to submit their favourite sounds throughout the year and these will be recorded and made available for all to hear at various live events during 2017. It is also designed to complement “Mind on the Run” the year–long celebration of the Hull’s obscurely influential artist, the composer and sonic explorer Basil Kirchin.

Use this form to submit your favourite sounds of Hull online.

Favourite Sounds of Hull is part of Mind on the Run: The Basil Kirchin Story, our celebration of a forgotten musical genius. Hull City Hall, 17-19 Feb 2017 – tickets available now.
