Soundwalk starts talking

29 Nov 2011

Soundwalk starts talking Image

The Docklands Soundwalk got underway last month, with 10 stations where visitors can have a “sound art” experience.

Artist Gerald Mair (pictured right) has created a series of sound snippets which interweave narrative and soundscape inspired by the Docklands experience.

Participation is via smart phone (both Apple and Android-based) and users scan a QR (quick response) code prominently displayed at each station.  The smart phone will not only play the sound clip, it will then direct the user to the next stop on a map.

Users need a QR scanning app on their phone before they can participate.

Mr Mair has covered historic and contemporary aspects of life in Docklands.  Aboriginal dreaming is explored and listeners come speaker-to-ear with the brutal reality of Melbourne’s waterfront in more recent times.

The Soundwalk starts in Docklands Park on the corner of Harbour Esplanade and Bourke St and runs until March.

It was primarily funded via a City of Melbourne arts grant.
