Sukanta is a sound artist and film composer who is interested in memories of place and how sound can give you a sense of time. He has been recording for years in an empty factory in Calcutta called National Instruments, and engaged with its history at the different moments in which he has recorded it . This was not thought of as an archival project; it was created for the need of searching for something there, in that empty space, through sound. Within the process he has been amazed of how sound has an extraordinary way to relate to time, memory and history of a place.

Sound Matters is a research project that brings together an interdisciplinary community working in the creative use and re-use of sound specifically field recordings and speech. We aim to create together a framework that facilitates the interrogation and relational playback of sound in its own terms.
Sound Matters is a Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice (CRiSAP) project, funded by JISC.
