Most of my recordings here feature on the London Sound Survey website:

http://www.soundsurvey.org.uk

It has recordings of daily life and events in London, sound maps, historical accounts of how the city sounded in past times, and more. If you've got any London sounds you'd like to share, please get in touch.

It's okay to use any of my recordings for non-commercial purposes. But please say where you got them from and give due credit, both to Freesound and London Sound Survey.
