International Year of Sound 2020-2021


There is a wealth of information available on acoustics, sound, and the effects of sound

Special Projects

Voices from the Peak

Voices From The Peak is a series of immersive audio-artworks which take listeners on a journey through the UK’s first National Park – the Peak District. Using acoustics of place, atmospheres, wildlife, weather, and voices past and present we discover the unheard soundscapes and stories of this strange and beautiful region. By linking Voices From The Peak with the International Year of Sound, we hope National Parks around the world will be inspired to celebrate their own sense of place and time – through sound.

Voices from the Peak is supported by Arts Council England; The Peak District National Park; Derbyshire County Council; and Cromford Mills.
