Walk With Me
Walk with Me is a ‘soundprint’ of another persons world in real time, it’s a series of sonic excursions set throughout Ramsgate, each with their own unique starting point, the listener will be guided through the town, listening to what it all means to someone else.
As an interactive piece, this is a clash of two sonic moments; the past and present. The listener will need to heighten their awareness of the sonic world, tuning in to the way someone else is interacting with space whilst at the same time absorbing the real world. The work creates a dependancy on the guide as they lead the way and the excursions are available ‘off line’, allowing you to go out and actually try to keep up with the guide’s directions and movements. As a radio piece, it’s a unique and detailed account of a noisy world of opinions, lifestyles and beliefs.

For those of you not familiar with our walk with me series, the best way to describe it is as a ‘soundprint’ of another persons world in real time, it’s a series of sonic excursions set throughout a particular location - it’s an intimate sonic experience that allows you to see the world through another’s perspective.
