Interactive Tools Showcase - NOVARS Postgraduate Showcase
Time & Location
About the Event
A showcase of new interactive sonic art & music by University of Manchester Postgraduate students.
Martin Harris Centre | 10.30-12.30PM | 7th May |
I'll be presenting my latest work Way Down to Pomona alongside a new augmented reality creative platform 'augmented[au]reality' that I have prototyped.
Way Down to Pomona
An augmented reality soundwalk around Pomona Island in central Manchester. Suspended between the Bridgewater Canal and the River Irwell, this concrete island bountiful with flora and fauna exists in a strange limbo between its industrial past and inevitable destruction and development. This interactive work is an immersive re-imagining of Pomona’s history through field recordings, composed music, oral histories and archival material (with thanks to Greater Manchester County Record Office) that are unveiled as the site is explored by the listener based on their GPS data.
