In Huddersfield right now the HCMF (Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival) is in full-swing. This year it is celebrating it’s thirtieth birthday. For the occasion HCMF and the University of Huddersfield commissioned me to create a sound toy. This is my reason for making thirty sketches of Huddersfield.
Each building represents one of (almost) thirty organisations that currently make music in or around Huddersfield. With the sound toy you can make compositions by dragging buildings onto an open green landscape. By strategically placing the buildings you create a new urban landscape and unique aural experience.
