Hilton Soundscape

My former colleague Pete Stollery created a soundscape featuring the Northern College of Education – Aberdeen Campus.    I worked at Norcol until I moved to work on the early stages of the  Glow Project in the late 1910’s.

Pete’s soundscape consists of a map of the campus with buttons which play sounds which were recorded at the highlighted location.  If you like me were familiar with the campus ( its now a housing estate ) then you might find this interesting and it may bring back some memories!

Memories from the past

A former colleague from Northern College of Education sent me a link to the following video which caused me to reminis about the period of time (16 years) I worked for this organization. The video features a sequence of pictures of the Gardyne Road building which was one of the two Northern College Campuses – that other was in Aberdeen which was my main base. The Aberdeen campus is now a mere memory as it was sold by Aberdeen University for residential property development after Northern College was de-merged and merged with Aberdeen university as its Faculty of Education.

Looked for a picture of the Aberdeen Campus and could not find one but Google Maps show an aerial view see below

Knowing that this will be updated in due course here is a static view of the above image so it can be preserved.
