The History and Sounds of Sylvia Crowe's Cumberland Basin, Bristol.  Wendy teamed up with Dan Pope (Atkins Senior Consultant, Acoustics, Noise & Vibration) to explore the Cumberland Basin Bridges scheme on World Listening Day.  The aim was to experience the architecture and landscape through the sense of sound.  Performance artist Ellen Southern carried out a surprise site specific piece under the Brunel Way, that explored the specific acoustic qualities of the space.
