Rather than lose the sounds and images of the day in the galleries available in the Blog/Sound/Image part of the website, we’ve decided to create a separate section here – each image and sound will be moved here when we update the welcome page, so if you have any favourites, you can find them here.
Crowded subway back from the flag lowering ceremony! The hustle and bustle of Beijing was one of the key sonic features for me!

Here is a short recording of Wangfujling street- aka the night market. Lots of interesting delicacies to taste. If you listen carefully, you can hear the sizzling of a wok!
This is a short clip from the flag raising ceremony in Tiananmen Square.
Some of the first sounds we heard in Beijing… I really cannot wait to work with these when we are back in the UK!
