Audio Library
The UKMO Audio Library

The Museum has recently added an Audio Library to its collection of ordure, which invites the participation of the public on a range of important topics. The archive will grow day by day through the months of August and September at Stills Gallery, Edinburgh, with online visitors able to listen to extracts from the links below.

Visitors to the recording studio at Stills are invited to step up to the microphone and talk about the topic of the day, drawing upon material found in The Scotsman and Daily Record newspapers. Whilst speaking, voices are instantly recorded and rearranged in realtime to produce a non-stop collection of statements reflecting the journalistic interpretation of the news and public opinion. An extract from each day’s recordings are permanently archived in the table below.

For more information about the UKMO Audio Library, please visit our Structures and Policies page.
