This is Highfield Road is an online sound archive created by artist Duncan Whitley. It documents the sounds of Coventry City F.C’s Highfield Road stadium during their final season at the ground in 2004/05. Captured in vivid binaural sound for listening on headphones, the 141 sound recordings transport us to the heart of Highfield Road’s West Terrace. The archive offers a tool for the playful exploration of the language of football crowd sound, reflecting broadly on the connections between sound, place and identity.
