In celebration of the 1935 Noise Abatement exhibition, participants at the workshop ‘Noise and Silence’ at Nottingham University on 27 March 2015 were invited to make a 78rpm noise record. A 1930s studio recording of a crowd scene, used as sound effects for film, radio and theatre, was re-enacted, the hubbub recorded direct-to-disc on a vintage recording lathe and played back on a turntable. The crowd noises were directed by Jean-Philippe Calvin, disc recording by Aleks Kolkowski.
