About the recordings

City of Things is a sonic investigation of Milton Keynes by artist, Caroline Devine to celebrate the 50th birthday of the city. Presented as a sound installation in centre:mk throughout October 2017, City of Things includes sounds, signals and voices of the city which are woven into the composition. Devine developed the work over a year, during which time she listened to and recorded the city. Some of the material included in the sound installation can be explored through the online soundmap that accompanies the exhibition.
