What does Shropshire sound like?

Wapke Feenstra has set up the Bibliobox for myvillages.org.
She’s generally interested in collections, either of images, items, spaces, routes, narratives etc. She is using websites, the book format or physical containers to facilitate her different collections. Wapke doesn’t see her collections as archives to be locked away, but as a living archive that grows by being used and offers a new meeting space for showing and discussing ideas.

The Bibliobox is both, a website and a travelling box, and both contain collected documents from other artists and their projects in rural areas. Wapke has selected some sound based pieces from the BBBox, a poetry based piece she did in regards to her home village, a music collection by Georgina Starr and a text based piece that describes the atmosphere of a country house in Denmark. Wapke is also starting a new collection, by asking:
What does Shropshire sound like?
