Music You Can Walk Inside

Come and see us at the Creative Digifest, Friday 18 May 2012
University of Southampton, Highfield Campus

A combination of sounds – composed and distributed virtually around a place – with GPS data about the listener’s location and movement recreate the music in a unique way for each listener.
noTours can be been used in diverse ways to augment and shift the way we hear the sounds of a place. You can leave messages, tell stories about the surroundings or – as composer Ben Mawson has done – build a musical composition invisibly into a landscape.

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).
