About the Event
As part of a wider project, CFCCA's current Archive & Library artist-in-residence Hayley Suviste has created a soundwalk using material from our archive. Hayley is a Manchester-based sound artist and composer whose sonic compositions exploring space, memory and narrative often address sociohistorical themes and seek to capture individuals’ lived experiences. This soundwalk aims to sonically animate the content of our archive, bringing to life the hidden histories and images within and inviting new audiences and communities to engage with these stories. The work is based on oral histories from our archive, in which interviewees talk of their migrant experience, their identities as people of Chinese heritage living in the UK, memories of Manchester's Chinatown and Chinese festivals, and our first venue on Charlotte Street. Listeners can uncover these stories, alongside field recordings and music composed by Hayley, whilst exploring the streets of Chinatown with geolocated sounds and interview clips triggered by their GPS data. The audio for this work has been mixed in 360-degree binaural audio, creating the sensation that different sounds are being emitted from all directions around the listeners head and providing a fully immersive experience. The soundwalk will be available through the ECHOES app (https://echoes.xyz/), and each listener will need a smartphone and headphones to access.
This event will run in line with local & national government guidelines at the time of the festival. Visitors can access the soundwalk on their own mobile devices.
