Experience the sound walks by joining us at Lord Ashcroft Building 028 between 1-5pm.

The Department of Music and Performing Arts’ annual Festival Week is breaking new ground this year with Radiophonica Mobile Sounds Walks as part of their calendar of events.

These Sound Walks are experienced using a mobile phone, which will be provided, and take in evocative sites around the Anglia Ruskin Campus. These range from the River Cam, to the Mill Road area including the Cemetery. Each work explores different approaches to drama and place, from Gothic horror, to natural disaster and street crime.

The project, sponsored by the University’s public arts programme Visualise, is a collaboration with Enrique Tomás of noTours.org, and uses the noTours Android mobile phone software. The software enables sounds to be triggered by GPS technology according to the location of the listener, allowing listeners to take the walk at their own pace. Everyone is welcome to come and take part in the experience.

You will be asked to leave card details as a deposit to ensure the safe return of equipment.
