LOCATIVE AUDIO

Locative Audio 2012 covers 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. The projects take advantage of location-based audio and other interactive media and game-engine technologies, combined with the Novars Research Centre's strength in electroacoustic composition and computer music.

The event takes place from 12:00pm to 5:00pm this Friday 29th June at the Martin Harris Centre, University of Manchester, and features four concerts focusing on audio visual works, acousmatic performances, a variety of installations and interactive sound walks for Android, Iphone and Ipad (with GPS, WIFI, 3G), as well as live improvised performances from the Noise Upstairs ensemble. 

I will be diffusing a recent piece, Soundscape of Manchester, as part of concert three The Acousmatic City (3:00pm-3:50pm), in the John Thaw Studio.
