British Soundscape

Nature and music as a remedy: inviting Londoners to celebrate the coast with National Trust. 

In 2015, the National Trust will celebrate its 120th anniversary and its successful conservation campaign “Neptune Coastline Campaign” will celebrate its 50th anniversary. In order to highlight the National Trust’s achievement of coastal conservation, “British Soundscape”, an online open source platform, presents a collection of sea sounds collected from the National Trust’s coastal properties such as Brownsea Island, to inspire musicians. In spring 2014, as part of the campaign “#SingForSea”, musicians will perform the sea-inspired music in London stations to encourage commuters to visit the seaside in the care of the Neptune Coastline Campaign during the summertime. At the end of 2014, all the sea-inspired music works will be picked for an upcoming album collection, "British Soundscape 2015: The Symphony Between Human And Nature", as part of the National Trust's celebration activities in both metropolitan cities and the Trust’s coastal properties.
