Radiophonica Mobile Sound Walks in Cambridge

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.
Talk with Enrique Tomás (noTours.org) and Dr Tom Hall (Anglia Ruskin University) 12-12.45pm Lord Ashcroft Building 028, via East Road Reception.
Experience the sound walks by joining us at Lord Ashcroft Building 028 between 1-5pm.

Workshop in Tallin @ KUMU

Our workshops are the perfect meeting point for preparing the contents of a noTours soundwalk. Local people bring us to the actual sonorous situation of a place while giving us the necessary clues for finding soundmarks and important sounds.
In Tallin our workshop was organized by the National Contemporany Art Museum KUMU in collaboration with the Art Academy of Tallinn. Our students were mainly undergraduate Bachelors and some teachers of the Music Academy and the Faculty of Humanities (Anthropology).
