Cities and Memory: Utopia takes one of English literature’s great works of imagination, Thomas More’s Utopia and creates something new from the collective imagination of artists around the world – an entirely new Utopia of sound.

Using a woodcut map from the second printed edition of Utopia from 1518, we divided it into 30 grid squares. Sound artists each took a small section of the imagined country of Utopia, and created a new soundscape imagining how that place (and the society living in it) might sound.

This is just a small selection of the Utopia sounds from the project – you can explore them all at the interactive map at www.citiesandmemory.com/utopia
