UCC’s Sonic Histories of Cork City (SHOCC) Project explores sound in Cork City from historical perspectives.

In their interactive demonstration for Culture Night – entitled “SHOCC & Awe: Some Historical Sounds of Cork City” – project leaders Elaine Harrington, John Hough, and Dr. Jill Rogers prompt participants to think about how Cork City might have sounded in the past through hands-on engagement with historical artifacts such as videos, newspapers, letters, and diaries.

Since one of the aims of the SHOCC project is to provide soundscapes and accompanying narratives for various locations in Cork City, these will be on hand for participants to listen to and discuss with the project’s leaders. In addition, participants will be introduced to the SHOCC Project’s app, which allows users to record and geotag sounds in their area, and encouraged to practice using this new app in and beyond the Creative Zone.
