Recording the whispered hopes of the community in Reading.
You are listening to an extract of the ongoing project "Whispered Hopes"
Recorded by students from Theale Green Community School and people from Reading.
These hopes for the future span what people want for themselves, for others, for the community and for the world.
The background sound is a soundscape extrapolated from one person's whisper. The tempo has been greatly lengthened, the noise removed and various other elements stretched and affected to create the ethereal atmosphere that you hear.
This will form part of a larger exhibit at Reading Minster as part of the Whitley Arts Festival 2011.
