Behind the Sherbourne Fields School is a path leading to Coundon Wedge Drive and Allesley village. Listen closely and we can hear the hum of the rush hour traffic in the distance. This time, we twist and turn walking along the river’s path, with the leaves and twigs crunching under our feet, taking in the birds and wildlife surrounding us on the outskirts of the city. We open and close the gates, and nod our head to a passing dog walker.

It’s not compulsory, but these soundscapes are best listened to while wearing headphones! All conversations are authentic and real. The recordings were captured using a binaural microphone between January and April 2022. You can also hear these soundscapes in the accompanying storyteller episodes in our first series.

Sound design by Clare Freeman, opening music by Mintakaa. ‘Our Cov’ podcast series is a Coventry City of Culture Trust commission, created and produced by A Small Furry Bear Productions.
