UNTITLED CRISIS –A new locative audio work which explores the relationship between sound, location and the climate crisis. Utilising the latest technology developed as part of the EASTN-DC project, and with the support of Novars at the University of Manchester, locative ambisonic sounds, locative 3D sound, as well as more traditional ’2D’ soundwalk methodologies will be combined to create a walking audio experience that invites people to think about their surroundings through new ears. The climate crisis will pose a central research and creative question, which is ”how can we interpret our own responses to a global emergency through creative use of sound?”. Using locative media will generate a connection to community and locality which is not possible with conventional media. This work aims to stimulate and generate further creative responses to the climate crisis through novel means.
