We know it is Wimbledon if we watch, but what if we only listen; what sounds like Wimbledon?
The Museum’s Learning department, along with young people from Wandsworth Vision Support Service and Foley artist Louise Brown, have been listening closely.
This film below shows the making of the 2015 Community Art Project 'Sounds Like Wimbledon’ that set out to recreate the unique soundtrack of tennis on grass using everyday objects like coriander, coconuts and a microwave oven.
A Foley artist reproduces and plays with sound.
If you have ever watched a movie, heard radio comedy or seen a television drama, then you will have heard a Foley artist at work.
Everything you hear on this recording from the swish of a racket to the bounce of a ball has been created using non-tennis related objects.
Nothing can sound like Wimbledon - or can it?
