Since the start of the COVID-19 lockdown in March, Pete Stollery has been compiling a Google Earth-based sound map, designed to document changes in the soundscape which are occurring as a result of restrictions put in place by governments around the world. With over 190 sounds on the map from 18 countries to date, the project is now beginning to document the changes as we move out of lockdown (and sometimes back in again).  

Pete Stollery will give a live talk via Zoom about the project and give a guided tour of the map, which can be found here
