You've seen the people freeze in train stations and the mass pillow fights. Well, this will be a more invisible experience...
If you register to take part in this event you'll be invited to download an MP3 and turn up at a secret location to listen to the soundtrack at a specified time.
When you put on the headphones you'll find yourself immersed in the cinema of everyday life. As the soundtrack swells people in the crowd around you will begin to re-enact the world you always see but often don't notice.
Sometimes you'll just be drifting and watching, but sometimes you'll be following instructions on the soundtrack and creating the scenes yourself. Don't worry, there will be nothing illegal or embarrassing, sometimes you might be re-enacting moments you've seen in films, sometimes you'll just be playing yourself.
This is no requiem, this a celebratory slow dance, a chance to savour the world you live in, and to see it with fresh eyes.About the creator: Duncan Speakman
is an artist based in the UK Bristol. Since 2008, Speakman has been an artist in residence at the Pervasive Media Studio located in Bristol.Originally trained as a sound engineer at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, his work now examines how we use sound to locate ourselves in personal and political environments. Seeking out the poetics of the everyday, he creates socially relevant experiences that engage audiences emotionally and physically in public spaces.
Many of the pieces Speakman creates, such as the sound walks and live performances, are experienced on headphones while walking through public spaces. Sometimes they are pre-recorded; at other times they may use satellite positioning, live performers and real-time sound processing. Other works include large-scale video projections, micro-documentaries and books.
Speakman is a senior lecturer in Media Practice at the University of the West of England and is currently developing site-responsive sound walks, street games and pervasive theatre works. He has been exhibited internationally at festivals including ISEA (Nagoya), Futuresonic (Manchester), RADAR (Mexico City), enter (Cambridge), TPAM (Tokyo), Liveworks (Sydney), Navigate Live (Gateshead) and InBetweenTime (Bristol).
In 2001 he was awarded the Clark Trust Bursary for digital arts and has received critical acclaim for his video blog 29fragiledays. In 2007 he was peer advisor on the Almost Perfect locative media residency at Banff New Media Institute and in 2009 he was awarded the Vauxhall Collective Theatre commission for his work creating the 'subtlemob' performance form.
