Worcester Sound and Vision

Our first year BA Digital Media Production students have been working on a live brief to capture the feel of the city of Worcester through both sound and vision, in their Digital Media Production module in semester one.

Students have produced a wonderful variety of images of the city, together with a soundscape for each image, featuring landmarks such as the Cathedral and the Hive, through to busy Victorian markets, and interviews.

As well as working in a digital format, a set of postcards are being printed. The International Experience team have been involved in the selection of images, to be given as gifts across the world. The postcards will feature a full colour image of a city landmark and a QR code will take you to the digital soundscape. In this way, you can experience the city of Worcester from anywhere!

Below are a selection of images with their soundscapes.

Friar Street is one of few medieval streets left in Worcester. Its timber framed buildings are located at the heart of Worcester city centre where passers-by can shop, eat, and grab a drink. A simple walk down the street captures a snapshot of Worcester’s history, bringing back the city’s original character and life. Credit: Caitlin Gibbs
