Soundpaths is a project by Manchester based music charity Brighter Sound as part of SICK Festival‘s MINDSCAPES programme. It is a digital soundmap in the form of a running and walking app for residents of Moston and Harpurhey. Greater Manchester artists were invited to contribute site specific sounds to the soundtrack of the app which was composed by composer Yoni Collier. I sonically represented the Blue Bell pub through combining field recordings of the surrounding areas and a sound recording of an old Facebook video that shows guests of the pub singing together, merging the sonic present and past, evoking a sense of nostalgia.
