The Locative Audio event at NOVARS Manchester covered a number of sonic-centric projects in the city of Manchester, UK, and beyond, with a focus on the concept “City as Museum /City as Instrument” through sound.

Poems and literature are gateways to other worlds, they move you to other places via the mind. noTours is inversing this. Poetry and literature will come to you, by moving yourself through the environment.
After our soundwalk in Ghent I asked the poet Geert Vermeire, active partner in the project, to describe his experience while creating and listening the geolocated poetry walk. The next lines (by Geert) condense his thoughts.
noTours has recently arrived Tallinn for starting the production of a new geolocalized soundwalk in the context of the exhibition Gateways (opening in May 2011 at KUMU).

He is a sort of fourth estate, outside of Church and State and People.”
