Locative Audio Documentary Film

Locative Audio – a film by Angela Guyton for locativeaudio.org from NOVARS Research Centre on Vimeo.

NOVARS Research Centre presents a new documentary film about the Locative Audio Project which took place in June 29th, 2012. The film is directed by Angela Guyton.

With renewed support by Cities@manchester, Locative Audio Project 2012 explores the connections between the City (via aurally augmented CityTours) with ‘The Concert Hall’. A number of participants from the UK and abroad were invited to share their creative thinking, combining Location-based Audio and Media with game-physics-audio engine technologies often found in the production of virtual environments and games. The project collaborated with The Noise Upstairs Ensemble, which adopted the role as the ultimate Locative Audio Ensemble. The event included collaborative texts for the audioguide tour contents from a number of groups like the Whitworth Park Community Archaeology and History project at Manchester University or original writings by musicologist like Roddy Hawkins and postgraduate students in Music such as Alex Allred. Of course it includes the full support and creative energy from our great NOVARS-MANTIS Team as usual.
