I’ve just uploaded one of the pieces that I wrote as part of the Three Cities Project to a new website. I’m looking for volunteers to download it to their mp3 players and then go for a walk somewhere (anywhere) with it playing through headphones. The original recording was made in the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg earlier this year. You may want to visit a local gallery or museum…or you might just take a walk down a nearby street – it really doesn’t matter.
What I’d then like is a short email with the following:
Where you walked
When (including time of day)
A few words about the experience – any observations?
If you happen to take any photographs along the way, that would be hugely appreciated – but not essential.
With your permission I’d then put a short post on the site with a map of the area that you visited and your responses. I’m in the process of adding more material to the site. At the moment there are some pictures, a short description and a video. The piece is going to be included in my PhD folio and this exercise is a kind of research into how people respond to relocated sound via headphones.
Many thanks in advance!
