During this years Mental Health Awareness week, Ignite's Richard Tomlinson invited the Somerset community to record a word, sound or line of poetry, with the intention of creating a soundscape that would reflect the honest feelings of our community during this unprecedented time.

The outcome of this week-long community project is a moving and thought-provoking auditory piece.

Thanks to all the wonderful contributors who recorded a message and shared their thoughts and feelings. We received a wide range of audio including: the beautiful chatting of a baby, the sound of a harp, poetry and birdsong. So, here is ‘how are you feeling Somerset, a sonic sound poem’
